Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No. 1 «Encounter», 4th mvt
«Rhapsody in Blue» for Orchestra
When British band Emerson, Lake & Palmer released ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’ in 1971, it immediately became a must-have album. Popular adaptations of classical music and mixing new styles and older works were a growing trend. The star of this evening is the Japanese jazz pianist Yōsuke Yamashita. As the soloist in his own Piano Concerto and George Gershwin’s ‘Rhapsody in Blue’, he will once again confirm that his reputation as a brilliant technician is more than justified.
