Jean-Efflam Bavouzet Piano

Ravel Pavane pour une infante défunte
Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 2
Ravel Le Tombeau de Couperin
Prokofiev Symphony No. 1, “Classical”

This beautifully balanced program leads listeners from profound emotional depths to irrepressible bursts of merriment. Beethoven’s Piano Concerto is a jovial exchange between orchestra and soloist, while Ravel draws on the graceful elegance of Baroque dances to create a musical post-war memorial. Prokofiev wittily juxtaposes his own daring musical language with elegant Mozartian gestures. 

Bravo! Vail
