“When you're named after one of the biggest constellations in the night sky, the pressure is on to display star power—and Orion Weiss did exactly that...vrtuosity to spare,” raves The Washington Post. Orion Weiss plays Maurice Ravel’s jazz-inspired Piano Concerto in G, and Edo de Waart conducts Stravinsky’s colorful music for the ballet Petrouchka.
