Sarah Chang is a huge star – on the level of Josh Bell in ticket sales and one of the greatest child prodigies who now has a great career as an adult. She will be playing the Bruch Concerto, a piece she has performed famously. The Concerto has been described as ‘coquettish’.
Rossini’s Overture to “L’italiana in Algeri (An Italian Girl in Algiers) has been described as ‘charming’, with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 in A Major considered the composer’s most ‘powerful’ symphony.
