Ravel: A Portrait

3:00 PM
Sunday, June 7, 2015

In a season in which the CSO plays an especially large number of pieces by this most beloved of French composers, Beyond the Score responds with a musical and dramatic depiction of this complex, subtle, private, paradoxical and mysterious man who once declared: “My teacher in composition was Edgar Allan Poe … He taught me that true art is a perfect balance between pure intellect and emotion.”

Beyond the Score is a musical experience like no other! Using live theater, stunning visual projections and orchestral excerpts played by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, each installment will immerse you in the compelling stories behind symphonic music. Stay after every concert for a special behind-the-scenes Q&A with Gerard McBurney, creative director of Beyond the Score.

All Friday Beyond the Score concerts include POST, your after-concert lounge with CSO musicians, guest artists and music from DJ Justin Reed of illmeasures. Have a cocktail, mingle and discuss the production!


  • Ravel Piano Concerto for the Left Hand in D Major
  • Ravel La valse
