      Prokofiev: Piano Concerto No 2 in G minor, Op 16: III, Intermezzo (6:35); IV, Finale (11:00)

      Yuja Wang, piano; Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra / Gustavo Dudamel

      On this new album, recorded live in Caracas in February of this year, pianist Yuja Wang performs two of the most demanding concertos in the repertoire, under the direction of Venezuela’s superstar conductor, Gustavo Dudamel. Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto opens the program. About Prokofiev’s Second Piano Concerto, Wang remarks that it is “very powerful emotionally…with so much character and so much color.”
