St. Petersburg Symphony Orchestra – Vladimir Lande & Xiayin Wang

We preview the Houston debut-concert by Russia's St. Petersburg Symphony Orchestra! Principal Guest Conductor, Vladimir Lande, and rising, young Chinese pianist, Xiayin Wang [pictured], chat about the all-Russian program that they'll perform with the orchestra Thursday night, presented by Society for the Performing Arts.

Catherine Lu chats by phone with Vladimir Lande about Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5, and with Xiayin Wang about Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 3.
