Music by Ibert and Richard Strauss, featuring pianist Pascal Roge in Ravel's sparkling Piano Concerto in G
Presented by Fiona Talkington
Yoel Levi puts his KBS Symphony Orchestra through its paces in dazzling showpieces by Ibert and Strauss, one evoking different ports-of-call, the other evoking nothing less than the titanic philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche. In between, French pianist Pascal Roge plays the Concerto in G by one of his heroes: "I think Ravel was my first real French composer....[E]very time I play the Ravel concerto it’s still magic. ...The first love, the first music love is Ravel. I think it’s still maybe the closest."
