The VSO welcomes its third Music Director candidate, conductor Tania Miller, to the Flynn for an evening of exemplary music-making.
The concert opens with Sri Lankan-born composer Dinuk Wijeratne, described as “exuberantly creative” by the New York Times, and his explosive work titled Yatra (“pilgrimage”). Sibelius’ Symphony No. 1, composed early in his career, completes the first half of the concert and is testament to Finland’s undisputed musical voice and poet.
After intermission, we are joined by acclaimed UK pianist Stephen Hough for his first ever performance with the VSO in with one of the most technically challenging compositions of the pianistic repertoire: Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3.
This concert is sponsored by the Physician’s Computer Company and Northeast Delta Dental. Stephen Hough’s appearance is generously supported by the Tapia Family.
