Wei Luo, piano
George Walker | Lyric for Strings
Serge Prokofiev | Piano Concerto No. 3
Camille Saint-Saëns | Symphony No. 3, “Organ”
Filled with warm fluid harmonies and gorgeous solo passages, Walker’s Lyric for Strings offers a sense of serenity before pianist Wei Luo and orchestra dive into Prokofiev’s exuberant, poetic, witty and “devilishly difficult” Piano Concerto No. 3. The orchestra then pulls out all stops in Saint-Saëns’ majestic and thundering “Organ” Symphony.
