The New York Times declares that pianist Yuja Wang “is a thoughtful musician with an ear for color, texture, and harmony.” She is also a fiery, exciting artist, and she joins the San Francisco Symphony for a special concert in advance of the Orchestra’s tour to Asia. In the hands of this magnificent artist, Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini will sparkle unforgettably. In the second half, MTT and the Orchestra perform one of their signature works, Mahler’s raging and riveting Fifth Symphony.
