Saint-Saëns’ Piano Concerto no. 2 with Orquestra Simfónica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya (OBC)
conducted by Víctor Pablo Pérez

@ L'auditori de Barcelona, Sala 1

Program page is here.
I'm personally interested in OBC, because the current Music Advisor is Eiji Oue, a Japanese conductor whom I respect.
Eiji Oue directed the 1st Pacific Music Festival orchestra in 1990 on behalf of Leonard Bernstein
who suffered from the lung cancer and passed away soon after the festival.
Eiji Oue's sunny, open atmosphere suits very well with Barcelona.
