Overview

Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Conductor
Lang Lang, Piano

Program

Rachmaninoff - Piano Concerto No. 1

INTERMISSION

Mahler/Cooke - Symphony No. 10

 

A Philadelphia favorite himself, the incomparable Lang Lang plays another Philadelphia favorite, Sergei Rachmaninoff, whose career was so entwined with the Orchestra. Lang Lang's blend of youthful dynamism and extraordinary musicianship is perfect for the Piano Concerto No. 1, guaranteed to spark fireworks onstage. We end with Mahler's last symphony, No. 10, left unfinished at his death in 1911. Over the years many noted musicians and experts have worked on completing it. Great Britain's Deryck Cooke created the version first premiered and recorded in the U.S. by Eugene Ormandy and The Philadelphia Orchestra. Yannick's passion for this realization of Mahler's final work summons a Philadelphia Sound you'll feel as well as hear. Join us for this unforgettable season-ending event!
