Joshua Weilerstein conducts Saint-Saëns and Bizet – With George Li Verbier Festival 2016

About

Under the baton of Joshua Weilerstein, the Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra is joined by the rising star pianist George Li for a program of French Romantic music by Saint-Saëns and Bizet. The concert begins with Saint-Saëns's Piano Concerto No. 2, one of the composer's most famous, described by the pianist Sigismund Stojowski as "beginning like Bach and finishing like Offenbach." Next, the musicians perform Bizet's Symphony in C Major, a work composed when he was only 17 years old!
