Symphony Tacoma

Pantages Theater, Tacoma, WA

Charlie Albright, piano

Maurice Ravel – La valse
Lili Boulanger – D’un matin de printemps
Nadia Boulanger – Fantasy for piano and orchestra
George Gershwin – Rhapsody in Blue | An American in Paris

On the centennial of the Roaring Twenties, Symphony Tacoma celebrates the French and American musical influences of the decade. Ravel’s La Valse is a tribute to the Viennese waltz. The Boulanger sisters, both talented composers, left us few – yet notable – works. After Lili’s death at an early age, Nadia stopped composing, but her influence continued through her teaching of many important composers of the last century. Gershwin’s iconic Rhapsody in Blue and An American in Paris evoke imagery of the jazz, dance, and art that define the era. Tacoma favorite Charlie Albright returns for a third performance with Symphony Tacoma.
