A program of unprecedented 20th-century works: from the mood-setting interludes of a landmark English opera to a brave celebration of Finnish independence, the London Symphony Orchestra and principal guest conductor Michael Tilson Thomas journey through Sibelius’s austere Scandinavian landscape and the wild seas of Britten’s Aldeburgh. Dazzling pianist Yuja Wang performs Gershwin’s Concerto in F, his piece most true to Classical form that was initially titled the “New York Concerto.”
