Event Description

“Why be a second-rate Ravel when you can be a first-rate Gershwin?”  Thus said the great French composer when the great American song writer asked him for lessons.  Gershwin’s jazzy tone poem about the City of Lights pairs wonderfully with Ravel’s Boléro, a provocation inspired by the rhythms of the  fandango and the factory.  Between these two popular pieces, we welcome back the incredible Joyce Yang to perform Samuel Barber’s titanic Piano Concerto. This cinematic and passionate work is a true American masterpiece.
