About This Performance

Russian pianist Yulianna Avdeeva debuts at Heinz Hall with Mozart’s famous Piano Concerto No. 21.  This concerto was nicknamed “Elvira Madigan” in 1967 for its inclusion on the soundtrack to the film of the same name.  Dvořák’s cheerful Symphony No. 8 is inspired by the folk music of the composer’s native Bohemia.
