Season Presenting Partner

Benjamin Grosvenor, a magician of the piano, will perform Ravel’s mesmerizing Concerto in G. In the middle movement of this irrepressibly vibrant work, the composer reveals his deep sensitivity in an ethereal melody of the utmost tenderness. The more turbulent mood of Vaughan Williams’ Symphony no. 6 offers a striking contrast: forceful, though interspersed with introspective passages, this work is powered by an ongoing tension that dissolves into virtual immateriality in the finale.
