Classical Music's Brightest Rising Stars Perform Prokofiev
Seattle Symphony's resident associate conductor Pablo Rus Broseta is continuing his pioneering tenure with the orchestra by inviting three dynamic young musicians to perform three of Prokofiev's earliest works. The festival celebrates the iconic Russian composer's first forays into the world of classical music as a student in Imperial Russia, revealing his first hints of brilliance and the emergence of what was to become one of the greatest sonic voices in the Western Classical tradition.
Sharing solo piano duties will be Nathan Lee, a budding and critically acclaimed 15 year old performer who made his orchestral debut at the age of nine, and Conrad Tao a young pianist/composer who was awarded one of the New York Times' Best Classical Music Performances of 2017. Violin prodigy William Hagen also made his symphonic debut at nine-years old, going onto become a seasoned international performer in the years that followed.
