Ravel was inspired to compose his Piano Concerto in G following a tour of North America, where he first became smitten with the sounds of jazz. You can hear jazz throughout this lively concerto, as well as Spanish flair and infectious rhythms. Messiaen’s The Resplendent Tomb and Chausson’s only symphony round out this program celebrating French composers.

The highlight was a fresh and dazzling account of Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G, with the brilliant French pianist Cédric Tiberghien, who played with rich, rounded tone in the lyrical stretches and fleet, crisp articulation in the spiraling, jazzy, virtuosic passages. ”
