Yuja Wang joins forces with the San Francisco Symphony and Music Director Esa-Pekka Salonen for a showstopping tour to France, Luxembourg, and Germany this month. Showcasing two fantastic programs, this first consists of Ms. Wang performing Rachmaninoff’s highly virtuosic Piano Concerto No. 3, a work in which Yuja feels as though she is climbing the Great Wall of China while relishing in the views of her breathtaking natural surroundings.
Multifaceted composer and SF Symphony Collaborative Partner Nico Muhly curated the second program. He will lead and perform a mesmerizing SoundBox program that features works and arrangments of his own, as well as by Peter Maxwell Davies, Caroline Shaw, John Dowland, François Couperin, J.S. Bach, Esa-Pekka Salonen, and Billy Childs, drawing upon the otherworldly talents of Ms. Wang.
