MTT leads a bewitching program bridging the impassioned strains of Russian Romanticism with the seductive Impressionist stylings of Claude Debussy. Following Tchaikovsky’s captivating symphonic fantasy after Shakespeare’s The Tempest, artist and audience favorite Yuja Wang offers Rachmaninoff’s melancholy Fourth Piano Concerto—the composer’s first work upon his self-exile to the United States, and the latest installment in Wang’s ongoing survey of the Rachmaninoff concertos. Debussy’s alluring orchestral triptych Images—including its famous three-movement centerpiece, Ibéria—concludes the program.
