Past event
$22-$122 (age 8-18 free)

Friday, September 28, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:50 pm

Seattle Symphony

Benaroya Hall, Seattle, WA

Steven Osborne, piano
Ludovic Morlot, conductor

Marc-André Dalbavie – La source d’un regard
Maurice Ravel – Piano Concerto in G major
Claude Debussy – Printemps
Maurice Ravel – Daphnis et Chloé Suite No. 2

From the rapturous sunrise in Daphnis et Chloé to the sultry jazz tones in the Concerto in G, Ravel’s orchestral scores saturate the stage with extravagant colors. For these ornate French creations, the delight is in the details, and the details are never more vibrant than when Ludovic Morlot works within the perfect acoustics of Benaroya Hall. He joins forces with pianist Steven Osborne, “whose approach to Ravel combines clarity with heart” (The Guardian). Debussy’s Printemps offers an early glimpse of this imaginative composer. Marc-André Dalbavie, one of today’s leading contributors to that exquisite French tradition, honors his forebear Messiaen in La source d’un regard
