Yuja Wang brings her scintillating virtuosity and impeccable musicianship to one of the great concertos of the piano repertoire: Rachmaninoff's brooding, passionate and ultimately exultant Piano Concerto No. 2. The concerto was the first work Rachmaninoff composed after recovering from the depression caused by the disastrous premiere of his Symphony No. 1. With its memorably stirring melodies and thrilling piano writing, it was an immediate hit – and has remained a favourite among performers and listeners ever since. In this performance, filmed at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in autumn 2021, Yuja Wang is accompanied by Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra.
