Ravel’s Piano Concerto with Hélène Grimaud and Tugan Sokhiev
Maurice Ravel’s G major Piano Concerto is a world in itself. Here there are echoes of jazz to be found as well as Stravinsky-like asperity and tender cantilenas. In 2009, Hélène Grimaud brought out the many facets of the work with consummate ease and sensitivity. Tugan Sokhiev, who made his conducting debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker in this concert, closed the evening with Sergei Rachmaninov’s melancholy Second Symphony.
