Rossini Overture, William Tell
Grieg Piano Concerto
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5 in E minor
“With passion and desire”. That’s what Tchaikovsky wrote on the score of his Fifth Symphony - and he was never one to hold back! Love, despair, sweeping waltzes and triumphant trumpets: this symphony has it all, just as Grieg’s famous Piano Concerto is the ultimate in romance. And for starters, Rossini’s overture to William Tell. No matter how many times you've heard it, there's still no more thrilling way to open a concert.
Unfortunately, Han-Na Chang, who was originally advertised to conduct this performance, is unwell and can no longer attend. We are grateful to Shiyeon Sung for stepping in at short notice.
