Mei-Ann Chen, conductor
Tony Siqi Yun, piano
ANNA CLYNE Masquerade
TCHAIKOVSKY Piano Concerto No. 1 in B-flat minor
Taiwanese-American conductor Mei-Ann Chen makes her BPO debut with an epic musical journey of ages past. Masquerade draws inspiration from 19th-century promenade concerts held in London’s pleasure gardens, and Pétrouchka tells the tragic tale of a magical street performer and his puppets, and his journey from life to afterlife. Finally, young pianist Tony Siqi Yun tackles Tchaikovsky’s majestic First Piano Concerto in his own BPO debut.
