Music from Hilton Head, National Festival Orchestra
Wednesday, December 16, 2015
Elliot Wuu is only 15 years old, but he’s already a YAS alum, and we didn’t have time to include these thrilling competition performances in our November airing from Hilton Head, South Carolina. Wuu played the Mozart and Chopin heard here en route to winning the Gold Medal at the 2015 Hilton Head International Piano Competition. Then Strauss’ Der Rosenkavalier, played by students of the National Orchestra Institute Festival, recorded at the University of Maryland Performing Arts Center.
Mozart: Piano Sonata No. 12 in F Major
Chopin: Andante Spianato and Grand Polonaise
--Elliot Wuu, piano
Strauss: Der Rosenkavalier Suite
--National Festival Orchestra; Rossen Milanov, conductor
