Mendelssohn’s First Piano Concerto & Dvorak’s Eighth Symphony
Streaming: Saturday, December 10, at 7:45pm EST
Dvořák’s Eighth remains one of his most popular symphonies; its uplifting, dance-like melodies are inspired by the folk songs of his native Bohemia. "The Times of London" has called Yeol Eum Son “a model of clarity and fleetness”—qualities that shine in her performance of Mendelssohn’s spellbinding work for piano and orchestra. The program opens with a world premiere by Pulitzer Prize–winner Tania León.
