Piano Concerto in G

TCHAIKOVSKY

Capriccio italien

In his Concerto in G, Ravel evokes memories of the Harlem jazz clubs he visited with Gershwin while on tour in America. It’s an effervescent romp with jazzy riffs and sensuous, lyrical passages and a final b breathless dash to the finish — courtesy of piano virtuoso Kirill Gerstein. Plus, vibrant impressions of Spain and Italy by Ravel and Tchaikovsky, and the US premiere of Magnus Lindberg’s Two Episodes.

“Gerstein was thunderous one moment, thoughtful the next…”
