Please join us for a pre-concert lecture by Steven Ledbetter in Tuckerman Hall at 7pm, free to all ticket holders.

In his first Worcester appearance, Ilya Yakushev joined Keith Lockhart and the BBC Concert Orchestra on the Mechanics Hall Stage. He returned to that stage in 2014 for a dazzling program of Rachmaninoff and Berlioz with the New Haven Symphony Orchestra. For his third Worcester performance he'll take the stage at Tuckerman Hall for a solo recital as part of our Bach Festival in Worcester's Salisbury Cultural District, performing works by Bach, Beethoven, and Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition

"Yakushev generated clouds of notes at a stunning rate, yet each run, cascade, torrent seemed perfectly articulated." —Jonathan Zuegner, Worcester Telegram & Gazette
