Most soloists already have their hands full with the fireworks from Rachmaninov's First Piano Concerto. To play it as a warm-up for his Paganini Rhapsody, you have to be called Yuja Wang. With this spectacular double-bill, she waves off as our Artist in Residence. This concert does not end there: finally, Sibelius' glorious Second, conducted by super talent Tarmo Peltokoski: the debut of the year.

On Thursday 19 and Friday 20 May at 7.15 pm there will be a concert introduction by Kees Wisse in the Van Cappellenzaal.
