MTT conducts settings of Romeo & Juliet

Celebrate the start of the new season as 22-year-old English piano sensation Benjamin Grosvenor performs Ravel’s jazz-inspired Piano Concerto in G major. "Grosvenor’s performance [is] so alluring, so alive to the music’s poetry, so colorfully detailed,” says London’s Daily Telegraph.  Plus, hear settings of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet by Tchaikovsky, as well as by Prokofiev.
