Le tombeau de Couperin
Symphony No. 3
The Philadelphia Orchestra
Music Director and Conductor
About The Performance
The Philadelphia Orchestra and Yannick Nézet-Séguin continue their fruitful musical partnership with exceptional pianist Beatrice Rana, who performed with this orchestra during her debut season at Carnegie Hall. Le tombeau de Couperin is a standout piece by Ravel, originally composed for piano in 1917 and lavishly orchestrated by the composer in 1919. Like much of her oeuvre, C. Schumann’s sole piano concerto stands the test of time and makes us long for more. Price’s Symphony No. 3—a well-respected yet under-performed work from the exceptional 20th-century American composer—continues The Philadelphia Orchestra’s ongoing exploration of her symphonies. Ravel’s Boléro, always a favorite, ends the evening with its unforgettable tune.
