    Yannick Nézet-Séguin Conductor

    R. Schumann Piano Concerto
    Dawson Negro Folk Symphony

    In 1934, legendary conductor Leopold Stokowski and The Philadelphia Orchestra brought audiences to their feet with the world premiere of William Dawson’s sensational Negro Folk Symphony. Inspired by traditional spirituals, Dawson’s emotionally charged symphony is a striking departure from the European symphonic form. Robert Schumann’s Piano Concerto builds a symphonic harmony between soloist and orchestra that is both surprising and satisfying. Pianist Tony Siqi Yun brings his poetic style to one of Schumann’s most popular works.
