NJSO Presents Winter Festival
America, Inspiring: Respighi & Prokofiev
Just as American concertgoers of another era cheered Prokofiev and Respighi, audiences are raining accolades on 21-year-old Chinese pianist George Li, silver medalist in the XV International Tchaikovsky Competition, and NJSO’s Xian Zhang.

GEORGE LI piano
NEW JERSEY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
CHEN YI Ge Xu (NJSO Premiere)
Dramatic and arresting; subtitled “Antiphony,” it sparks energy from the clash of modern and traditional styles.
PROKOFIEV Piano Concerto No. 3
Pianistic pyrotechnics, cutting wit and moments of tenderness; Prokofiev came to Chicago to premiere it.
RESPIGHI Fountains of Rome (NJSO Premiere)
A spirited, evocative portrait of the Eternal City; it depicts a quartet of fountains at dawn, morning, afternoon and sunset.
RESPIGHI Pines of Rome
Blooming and sumptuous, the closing piece Xian conducted on her first program with the NJSO in 2010; generations of moviegoers have enjoyed it as part of Disney’s Fantasia 2000.
