Program to Include:
John Adams: Short Ride in a Fast Machine
Jonathan Leshnoff: Piano Concerto
Sergei Rachmaninoff: Symphony no. 2 in E Minor
Rachmaninoff’s Second Symphony, known for its smooth and long-lined intensity, was a huge success with both audiences and critics alike and has remained popular due to its beautiful lyricism and dramatic ferocity. Blessed with “poetic and sensitive pianism” and a “wondrous sense of color”, Grammy-nominated pianist Joyce Yang captivates audiences with her virtuosity, lyricism and interpretive sensitivity. Yang returns to join the ASO in her performance of Jonathan Leshnoff’s stirring Piano Concerto.
