Spectacular pianist Yuja Wang, who wowed Chicago audiences and critics alike with her performance of Prokofiev's Second Piano Concerto in 2007, returns to play Prokofiev's colorful and invigorating Third Piano Concerto which the composer himself first premiered with the CSO in 1921. Sakari Oramo conducts Nielsen's landmark Fifth Symphony, in which the ferocious side drum soloist represents the devastating force of World War I.
