Prokofiev’s concerto is notoriously difficult, but when Yuja Wang last performed the work here, the Mercury News reported, “After each movement, conductor Michael Tilson Thomas turned toward the pianist to . . . give a little gasping ‘wow.’” Rachmaninoff was an extraordinary melodist; one of the tunes from his Second Symphony enjoyed a second life as a rock hit in the ’70s.
