The meeting of the richly traditional Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, conducting legend Zubin Mehta, and the most unusual piano star of our era in Jūrmala will make the audience believe in miracles. Yuja Wang’s playing is characterised by “technical ease, colouristic range and sheer power has always been remarkable … but these days there is an ever-greater depth to her musicianship, drawing you into the world of each composer with compelling immediacy,” wrote the Financial Times a year ago.

The concert will feature one of the most frequently performed Sergei Rachmaninoff opuses - his Piano Concerto No. 3, known as one of the most difficult piano concertos, requiring perfect technique and musicality. They will also perform Hector Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique, which split music history into before and after.
