We have the latest information on each concert's program, including a night of Spanish-themed music, "Tango, Song and Dance" by Yang, Villegas and Hadelich. And take a moment to read the Washington Post review of the debut of this program at the Kennedy Center. Salida will be only 1 of 3 locations this program will be presented this year!
In a July 4 New York Times review, Zachary Woolfe wrote of Joyce Yang, "The most substantial work on the program was Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 1, notable Wednesday for a sumptuous, powerful, subtle performance by the soloist, Joyce Yang. Even her most poundingly virtuosic passages were distinguished by a variety of touch and color, and she was sensitive throughout to the piano's interactions with the orchestra."
