MTT conducts Prokofiev and Rachmaninoff

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.
