Yang's Grieg, Giunta's Mahler 5th on SOI
Tune in tonight at 7 PM to hear Joyce Yang ("the most gifted young pianist of her generation," according to one critic) perform the Grieg Piano Concerto with the Des Moines Symphony. The winner of the prestigious Avery Fischer Career Grant has performed recently with the Chicago Symphony, New York Philharmonic, and Philadelphia Orchestra - hear her in Iowa! Then, stay tuned to hear Joseph Giunta conduct Mahler's powerful Symphony no. 5 with its heartfelt Adagietto. The concert begins with Sibelius's stirring Finlandia. The program was produced and hosted by Jacqueline Halbloom as part of IPR's "Symphonies of Iowa" series.
