THE guardian

The depth of the Dresden string tone was outstanding and the brass a marvel of richness and splendour… Exhilarating

Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 3, Op. 30
Brahms Symphony No. 2 in D major Op. 73

A thrilling musical partnership opens the NCH International Concert Series: sensational Chinese pianist Yuja Wang and one of the world’s most distinguished orchestras, Staatskapelle Dresden, with its Principal Guest Conductor, the Korean Myung-Whun Chung.

Musical America’s Artist of the Year in 2017, Yuja Wang performs perhaps the most technically demanding concerto in the standard piano repertoire, the much loved Concerto No. 3 by Rachmaninov. Composed to show off the composer’s own astounding virtuosity at his North American debut in New York in 1909 it will demonstrate why Yuja Wang is one of the most in-demand artists in the world today.

In contrast to the wave of new classical music talent emerging from China in recent decades, the Staatskapelle Dresden traces its roots back to 1548, making it one of the oldest orchestras in the world. Steeped in tradition, its previous music directors include Heinrich Schütz, Carl Maria von Weber and Richard Wagner; it enjoyed a close association with Richard Strauss and Brahms himself performed as both piano soloist and conductor with the orchestra. So his Symphony No. 2 will have a resounding ring of authenticity!
