Hélène Grimaud Plays Ravel
Part of: 2018-2019 Carnegie Hall Series
Pablo Heras-Casado returns to OSL to conduct this program exploring Haydn’s influence on 20th-century neoclassical composers. The inventive “Drumroll” Symphony is one of Haydn’s finest works and might have inspired Prokofiev’s effervescent “Classical” Symphony, which emulates Classical-era scoring and tone but remains firmly rooted in the 20th century. Pianist Hélène Grimaud plays Ravel’s dazzling Piano Concerto in G Major, which looks back to the Classical era with flashes of jazz and sizzling virtuosity.
Symphony No. 1 in D Major, Op. 25, “Classical”
