Zhang dives into The Mermaid, and Li effortlessly performs Tchaikovsky’s titanic Piano Concerto

About this Performance

Xian Zhang brings a special treat to LA Phil audiences, conducting Zemlinsky’s seldom performed symphonic fairytale inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid. The 40-minute fantasy follows sea creature’s longing and heartbreak, building upon winding, heartrending strings, and rich yet mysterious harmonies. George Li, a Silver medalist in the 2015 International Tchaikovsky Competition, tugs even further on listeners’ heartstrings with the composer’s lyrical First Piano Concerto.
