Haydn, Ravel & Mozart Piano Concertos

May 20–22
Benaroya Hall

Paul Mitchell

This event has been canceled.

Few pianists are as immersed in the music of Mozart and Haydn as Jean-Efflam Bavouzet. Currently in the midst of a multi-year project to record Mozart’s complete piano concertos and Haydn’s complete piano sonatas (75 works in total), Bavouzet is a true expert in these graceful, inventive and playful keyboard works. His classical expertise makes him the perfect artist to bring Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G to life, a work Ravel wrote “in the spirit of Mozart.” From its whip-crack opening to the serene beauty of the inner movement to the breathless finale, Ravel’s classically inspired, jazz-infused concerto is a stunning showcase of the composer’s incredible gift for color and melody.
