Yang's Grieg, Giunta's Mahler 5th on SOI
Join us tonight at 7 hear the Grieg Concerto played by Joyce Yang (called "the most gifted young pianist of her generation") with the Des Moines Symphony Orchestra. A winner of the prestigious Avery Fischer Career Grant, Yang has performed recently with the Chicago Symphony, New York Philharmonic, and Philadelphia Orchestra. The concert begins with Sibelius's stirring Finlandia and closes with Mahler's powerful Symphony no. 5, both conducted by music director Joseph Giunta. The program was produced and hosted by Jacqueline Halbloom as part of IPR's "Symphonies of Iowa" series.
