The New York Philharmonic welcomes guest soloist Conrad Tao to the stage to perform Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 17. This work showcases Mr. Tao's critically acclaimed talent, especially during the Allegro and Allegretto movements that are lively and full of character. He has appeared worldwide as a pianist and composer and has been dubbed “the kind of musician who is shaping the future of classical music” by New York Magazine.
Also on the program is Debussy's Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, the exquisite work that helped to define the composer's distinctive voice, and Respighi's Pines of Rome, the Italian composer's moving tribute to his country.
