ABOUT THIS CONCERT

The Mahler Chamber Orchestra joins forces with pianist Yuja Wang on an extensive tour to nine European cities in ten concerts. 

The MCO is no stranger to the Beethoven piano concertos: having worked intensively with pianist Leif Ove Andsnes on these pieces during their award-winning Beethoven Journey, the orchestra performs two of these concertos, this time with Yuja Wang leading from the piano. 

This concert also sees the MCO continuing its tradition of performing orchestral works – in this case, Mozart’s Overture to Don Giovanni and Stravinsky’s Pulcinella Suite – led by its concertmaster.

This tour marks the second collaboration between the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and Yuja Wang. Their first project together, which took place in April 2010, included performances of Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto and his Paganini Rhapsody under the direction of Claudio Abbado – one of which was recorded on the Deutsche Grammophon label. 

With this concert, the MCO returns to the familiar city of Aix-en-Provence, where it has appeared regularly since its beginnings. The MCO’s most recent performance in Aix-en-Provence took place in March 2016 at the Festival de Pâques, which featured concerts with MCO Artistic Partner Isabelle Faust, David Fray and Renaud Capuçon.
