On January 7, 2024 we’ll be handled to an all-Ravel program led by distinguished pianist and scholar Dr. Gwendolyn Mok. That is your probability to listen to a real Ravel professional as she performs fascinating items by probably the most vital and influential composers of the early twentieth century.
Designed to be paired with the Symphony’s Daphnis & Chloe live shows on January 20/21, this recital will draw on Dr. Mok’s spectacular expertise with Ravel’s works, in addition to her impressed musical artistry. She will probably be joined by two members of San Francisco Symphony—violinist Florin Parvulescu and cellist David Goldblatt—for a program that can embody Valses nobles et sentimentales for solo piano, Daphnis et Chloe, Half 3 organized for solo piano by the composer, Forlane, Menuet and Rigaudon from Le Tombeau de Couperin, and Trio for violin, cello and piano.
Should you attended our on-line Ravel class final 12 months with Dr. Mok, you already find out about her huge experience as a performer and trainer of Ravel’s music. This recital is a long-awaited alternative for Symphony patrons to listen to Dr. Mok play Ravel in a live performance corridor. Her previous live performance performances have been described as “peerless, fetching, rhythmically incisive, and lyrical.” You’ll be enchanted by her gentle contact on the keyboard and dazzled by her precision and energy.
