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