Principal musicians of RCO shine in Mahler’s Symphony No. 4, with sunny and transparent qualities that lend itself to a fanciful chamber orchestration.  Superstar double-threat Chelsea Guo sings the poetic finale AND takes the keys in Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 12, one of just three that the composer allowed to be performed with an intimate number of string players.
