American in Paris, Gershwin

Gershwin and Ravel

8:00 PM
Gershwin, Ravel, Stravinsky
Saturday, June 6, 2015

Gershwin’s An American in Paris captures the heady glamour and colorful sound world of 1920s Paris—complete with taxi horns and a sultry blues melody played by muted trumpet. Cocky and urbane, Stravinsky’s Jeu de cartes depicts the precipitous rise and fall of a social climber. Complementing the program’s “city slickers” theme are Ravel’s ravishing La valse and jazz-inflected Piano Concerto for Left Hand, featuring Russian pianist Denis Kozhukhin.
