BEETHOVEN, GINASTERA, RAVEL - Composers

JOSEP PONS - Conductor

BERTRAND CHAMAYOU - PIANO - Soloist

GINASTERA Variaciones Concertantes (21’)

RAVEL Piano Concerto in G (23’)

BEETHOVEN Symphony No 4 (34’)

So many wonderful soloists in this concert! Each of Ginastera’s 12 Variaciones puts different orchestral players in the spotlight, making a kind of kaleidoscopic spectacular. Then Bertrand Chamayou takes the stage for Ravel’s jazzy concerto. Ravel fell in love with jazz in the 1920s and fused it brilliantly with his own European heritage.

Chamayou is sparky, dazzlingly virtuosic, but thoughtful and sensitive too: the ideal soloist. After such a high-octane first half, Pons closes the evening with Beethoven’s lustrous Fourth Symphony.

CHAMAYOU BRINGS EVERYTHING HOME IN A WAY THAT IS DEEPLY PERSONAL, VIVID, UNIQUE. NO ONE WHO LOVES FRENCH MUSIC OR EXQUISITE PIANO PLAYING WILL WANT TO MISS THIS.
