“I almost came to the US at age 8 to pursue a career as a ballerina.  It was therefore especially meaningful that the first time I ever conducted The Nutcracker was at Lincoln Center for the New York City Ballet. One of Tchaikovsky’s most breathtaking musical moments symphonic audience rarely get to hear is in Act 1; the moment when the clock strikes twelve, and the toys come alive is pure magic.  Tchaikovsky’s imagination and storytelling also amaze in the fantasy-overture The Tempest. Based on William Shakespeare’s play, it is even more dramatic, noble and beautiful than his famous Romeo and Juliet.  You might not realize it, but chances are you already know and love Grieg’s romantic Piano Concerto – it features one of the most famous openings in classical music.” –Carolyn Kuan, Music Director
