Elegance and Emotion
David Greilsammer, conductor & piano
Rameau: Platée: Suite de danses
Ravel: Piano Concerto in G Major
Mozart: Overture to La Clemenza di Tito
Schubert: Symphony No. 4 in C minor, Tragic
A night of elegance and light-heartedness awaits in this concert of spirited works that are full of vitality. Though called Tragic, Schubert’s sublime Symphony No. 4 contains as much bubbly, youthful vigor as tragedy. Heavily influenced by jazz, Ravel’s Piano Concerto is light, fanciful and in the spirit of Mozart, while Mozart’s overture is full of elegance and flair. Rameau’s vivid and animated suite is a far cry from the refined and poised French courtly dances of the time.
