  • Rachmaninoff: Piano Concerto No. 2

    Carnegie Hall
    Mar 2024
    • From the first resonant chords of Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in C Minor, Op. 18, soloist Tony Siqi Yun, in an impressive Carnegie Hall debut, established himself as a first-rate talent. He shaped every phrase with a sculpted, directional sense of line. A milky, arioso tone and nimble, electrified arpeggios dripped from his arms, infused with character, whether Rachmaninoff indicated con passione or espressivo. Few piano concertos entwine soloist and orchestra so closely and Nézet-Séguin and Yun shared sweeping melodic hooks and long dramatic arcs effortlessly in step. The orchestra and pianist fed off each other’s energy in symbiosis, giving the concerto the feel of chamber music.
