Beethoven Violin Concerto

Masterworks Series >

Beethoven’s Violin Concerto reminds us all: Every moment is precious. This flawless creation turns each simple gesture — even just one repeated note — into a profound event. Violinist Augustin Hadelich, a musician as heroic as he is sensitive, dispatches Beethoven’s immortal concerto with his “silvery tone, pinpoint intonation and surprising turns of phrase” (Los Angeles Times). In Gigues, images of carefree folk dancing are refracted through the dreamy glow of Debussy.

Morlot Conducts Ravel

Masterworks Series >

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.
