New Jersey Symphony Orchestra: Winter Festival America, Inspiring: Respighi & Prokofiev

XIAN ZHANG conductor
GEORGE LI piano 
NEW JERSEY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Just as American concertgoers of another era cheered Prokofiev and Respighi, audiences are raining accolades on 21-year-old Chinese pianist George Li, silver medalist in the XV International Tchaikovsky Competition, and NJSO’s Xian Zhang.

CHEN YI Ge Xu (NJSO Premiere)
Dramatic and arresting; subtitled “Antiphony,” it sparks energy from the clash of modern and traditional styles.

PROKOFIEV Piano Concerto No. 3 
Pianistic pyrotechnics, cutting wit and moments of tenderness; Prokofiev came to Chicago to premiere it.

RESPIGHI Fountains of Rome (NJSO Premiere)
A spirited, evocative portrait of the Eternal City; it depicts a quartet of fountains at dawn, morning, afternoon and sunset.

RESPIGHI Pines of Rome
Blooming and sumptuous, the closing piece Xian conducted on her first program with the NJSO in 2010; generations of moviegoers have enjoyed it as part of Disney’s Fantasia 2000.
