Ravel Daphnis and Chloe & Piano Concerto for the Left Hand

Apr 5

8:00 PM

Debussy, Ravel

Thursday, April 5, 2018

Matthias Pintscher makes his CSO podium debut in a sensuous all-Ravel program. Rarely performed in its entirety, the lush and romantically yearning Daphnis and Chloe is one of Ravel’s most ravishing scores. The concert also includes Ravel’s inventive orchestration of Debussy's Sarabande and Danse, along with Ravel's dark and powerful Concerto for the Left Hand, performed by French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet. “Thibaudet is an artist of dazzling technique and passion” (The Straits Times).

Please join us in Grainger Ballroom immediately following the concert for a Q&A with the evening’s guest artists or CSO musicians. Open to all ticketholders.

Approximate concert duration: 110 minutes including intermission
