Dutoit Conducts Ravel

The LA Philharmonic, conducted by Charles Dutoit, will be performing pieces by Maurice Ravel at the Walt Disney Concert Hall November 9th through November 11th.

The LA Philharmonic will be playing two short pieces, named Pavane for a Dead Princess and Piano Concerto in G, and one longer piece, named L’heure espagnole, all by Ravel. This diverse program, including a piano piece, a concerto, and a comical opera, will keep you engaged and impressed by the extraordinary talent on stage.

Charles Dutoit, a highly acclaimed conductor from Lausanne, studied at the Conservatoire de musique de Genève and has conducted many orchestras including the Philaelphia Orchestra and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. He has also won several awards including two Grammys, many Juno Awards (Canada), and the Grand Prix du Président de la République (France). With over 40 national and international awards under his belt, Dutoit is arguably most well-known for his recordings of fantastic compositions written by Maurice Ravel.

Jean-Yves Thibaudet, an admired French pianist from Lyon, will be joining Dutoit for this performance. Thibaudet has traveled all around the world, performing as a classical solo artist and as a member of a chamber music group and orchestra. Thibaudet is currently the Artist-in-Residence with Orchestre National de France,  Wiener Symphonike, and the Colburn School in Los Angeles. Like Dutoit, Thibaudet has won many awards including the Premier Prix du Conservatoire and the Victoire d’Honneur. Thibaudet was also conducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame in 2010 for his extensive musical achievements.

Maurice Ravel, a French composer, pianist, and conductor was regarded as France’s greatest living composer in the 1920s and 1930s. Ravel composed pieces with elements of baroque, neoclassicism, and jazz music. Some of his most famous works are Gaspard de la nuit and Daphnis et Chloé.
