Yuja Wang kicks off 2021 with the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra at Exploria Stadium on Saturday, January 9, 2021, at 7:30 p.m. ET. Under the baton of Eric Jacobsen, Ms. Wang performs Strauss’s whimsical homage to Brahms with his composition for piano and orchestra. The evening concludes with a performance of Brahms’ dramatic and blissful fourth symphony.
“It is truly a dream come true to be able to welcome the amazing and inimitable Yuja Wang to Orlando,” says Eric Jacobsen, Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra music director. “She is simply without par in the piano world today, and I can’t wait to work with her to bring Strauss’s witty, zany and virtuosic Burleske to Orlando Philharmonic audiences. This is one of those concerts that’s going to be talked about for years to come, by those lucky enough to be there.”
