Yuja Wang Plays Prokofiev Alt.


  • Ligeti Concert Românesc 12′
  • Prokofiev Piano Concerto No. 5 22′
  • Brahms Symphony No. 2 42′

We are sorry to announce that Yuja Wang has been obliged to withdraw from this concert due to illness. We are very grateful to Denis Kozhukhin, who replaces her at short notice. The programme remains the same as advertised and we very much hope that you enjoy the performance.

Hold onto your hats – because if there’s one thing that can top the voltage of Ligeti’s spectacular Concert Românesc, it’s Prokofiev’s massive Fifth Concerto. Then relax into Brahms’s expansive Second Symphony: the first time Mirga has conducted it here in Birmingham.
