Dallas Symphony Orchestra at the Meyerson presents "The Two sides of Ravel" through March 2, 2014

FROM the website of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra
Jaap van Zweden conducting
Louis Lortie at the piano

Feb 27 through March 2, 2014

It begins softly. A single snare drum. Then, a flute. Gradually, each instrument of the Dallas Symphony joins in. One after the other. Until Ravel's "Bolero" reaches one of the greatest climaxes in all of music. Also, the brilliant Louis Lortie performs Mozart's delicate Piano Concerto No. 21, "Elvira Madigan."
