Joyce Yang, piano
Price // Dances in the Canebrakes
Prokofiev // Piano Concerto No. 3 in C Major
Mussorgsky/Ravel // Pictures at an Exhibition
There are few pieces of music as visually evocative as Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. Written in memory of artist Viktor Hartmann, the piece is a musical depiction of an art exhibition. Composer Florence Price was the first African American female recognized as a symphonic composer and the first to have a work premiered by a major symphony orchestra. Witness Joyce Yang push the piano to its limits with her performance of Prokofiev’s colorful Piano Concerto No. 3.
