San Francisco Symphony MTT Conducts Pianist Yuja Wang and Appalachian Spring

Yuja Wang, the most “uncannily gifted pianist in the concert world today” (San Francisco Chronicle), joins MTT and the SF Symphony in Ravel’s Piano Concerto for the Left Hand—a piece whose dark emotional climate is established in its opening seconds. A Global Climate Action Summit affiliate event, this concert also features two seasonally charged soundscapes: icy vignettes in Castiglioni’s Inverno, in-ver, and expansive vistas in Copland’s Appalachian Spring. Adding to this worldwide conversation on the environment, this atmospheric program opens with a performance of traditional songs by vocalist Abigail Washburn, enhanced by projections from the COAL + ICE photo exhibition, a collection of images that follows the trajectory of climate change from the earth’s coal mines to its vanishing glaciers.
