25. Kent Nagano Conducts Bartók and Ravel

Maison symphonique de Montréal

Hear the OSM perform one of its greatest recording successes: Ravel’s La valse, the featured encore of the Orchestra’s 2019 European tour. Inspired by Eastern European folk music and imbued with fiery vigour, Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra showcases the virtuosity of different OSM members.

Bartók, Concerto for Orchestra

RavelLa valse

“Mr. Nagano had an enthusiastic Carnegie crowd with him on Tuesday from the first bars of “La Valse.” His interpretation of the murky, halting opening section made it sound as if the music were emerging from a primordial stew. Slowly, fragments coalesced into a glittering, surreal, even dangerous exploration of the Viennese waltz.” – Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times
