The first song they played was a new work called Shenanigan by Kati Agocs. She was in the audience and she talked a little about it before they played it. I liked it!
I liked watching Joyce Yang play the piano with the orchestra. She played Piano Concerto No. 2 in C Minor by Rachmaninoff with the orchestra and she also played a piece by Chopin that wasn't in the program. I paid close attention to her hands. It was amazing! She bounced with energy when she performed! I really want to see her perform again.
I loved Pictures at an Exhibition by Mussorgsky. I especially liked Tuileries and the Polish Oxcart.
I really wish I had a recording of the whole concert! Everything was so good.
We stayed for the after concert chat. I found out that Joyce Yang started piano at 4 years old, just like me! Can you imagine she practices for 6 hours a day!
I got to meet her after the concert and Mom took a picture of us.
