PROKOFIEV Excerpts from Romeo and Juliet
“She is, quite simply, the most dazzling, uncannily gifted pianist in the concert world today” (San Francisco Chronicle). Be part of the glamour of Opening Night as the one-and-only Yuja Wang brings her extraordinary artistry and trademark panache to Ravel’s virtuosic concerto and sparkling showstoppers for solo piano. A night of musical magic ends in Prokofiev’s vibrant, impassioned rendering of Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers.
