If you do something, do it in a big way! In order to showcase their qualities, orchestras enjoy placing Scheherazade on the program. After all, the ravishing score requires top-notch soloists within the ensemble itself. The finest musicians have the opportunity to shine before, in the “Festival at Baghdad,” the entire orchestra is transformed into a sizzling, flaming rocket. Lighting the fuse will be Italian star conductor Antonio Pappano, who has already carried his Cecilia ensemble to the upper echelons of the world’s orchestras. Together, they show what they’re capable of while reaping laurels in the process. With Yuja Wang joining them to present Liszt’s First Concerto, the virtuoso cornucopia is only further enriched. This is music as a high-performance sport. The elite give everything they’ve got – to the thorough enjoyment of the audience.
