Opening Night Concert at Tanglewood

On July 8th, Yuja Wang will step in for Jean-Yves Thibaudet at Tanglewood ’s opening night concert with the highly lauded Boston Symphony Orchestra and their renowned music director, Andris Nelsons.

Ms. Wang will give her signature performance of Franz Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 1 which was described by the San Francisco Chronicle as “fluid, masterful, terrifyingly precise”.  The concert will also feature Leonard Bernstein’s Opening Prayer, an exquisite work that will showcase baritone Jack Canfield in his BSO debut. Also on the program is Igor Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, one of the most revolutionary works of its time.
