8:00 pm Verizon Hall

Celebrate 10 years of music-making between Yannick and the Philadelphians. André Watts soloed at Yannick's Philadelphia Orchestra debut in 2008; he celebrates the 10th anniversary with Grieg's stirring Piano Concerto. With the Metropolitan Opera giving the U.S. premiere of Nico Muhly's sensational opera Marnie, based on Winston Graham's book and Alfred Hitchcock's film, we present the world premiere of the companion orchestral suite Liar (a Philadelphia Orchestra commission). It's the first of many fruits of Yannick Nézet-Séguin's upcoming dual role leading both the Fabulous Philadelphians AND the Met. Rachmaninoff wrote his final work, the Symphonic Dances, specifically for The Philadelphia Orchestra. Here's another chance to hear the special Philadelphia Sound of the Yannick era!
