The 106 musicians of the National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America (NYO-USA) make their debut appearance in Daejeon on the final leg of the orchestra’s 2018 Asia tour. Michael Tilson Thomas leads a program that showcases his mastery of a wide range of repertoire, dedication to mentoring young talent, and commitment to the music of living composers. Jean-Yves Thibaudet performs Gershwin’s effervescent Piano Concerto—a touchstone work for both soloist and conductor—in a program that includes Sibelius’s heroic Symphony No. 2, as well as Brass Tacks by Ted Hearne, a new work commissioned by Carnegie Hall for NYO-USA.
