Debussy and Boulez

1:30 PM
Boulez, Stravinsky, Bartók, Debussy
Friday, November 14, 2014

Pablo Heras-Casado conducts a colorful program of 20th-century works, including Debussy’s sinuous Ibéria. Honoring the upcoming 90th birthday of CSO Helen Regenstein Conductor Emeritus Pierre Boulez, the CSO plays the musical maverick’s first work for full orchestra alone, Figures-Doubles-Prismes, while Alice Sara Ott joins the CSO for Bartók’s explosive Third Piano Concerto.

Pianist Alice Sara Ott views Bartók's Piano Concerto No. 3 not as “extreme and abstract” as his earlier piano concertos: “It’s a beautiful concerto, and I love the way it starts and the interaction with the orchestra." Read more at Sounds & Stories.
