Brilliant French pianist Hélène Grimaud performs one of the greatest of all French masterworks, Ravel’s jazz-infused Concerto in G. From the opening whip crack to the mesmerizing second movement and a jaunty whirlwind of a finale, this is piano virtuosity at its most colorful and captivating. Unsuk Chin’s Graffiti is paired with stunning video of Houston’s most iconic street art, created specially for this concert by Houston-based filmmaker Alex Luster. And, immerse yourself in the vibrant sights and sounds of Spain with Debussy’s “Ibéria” and Ravel’s Rapsodie espagnole.
