Having made a name for herself in the world’s most esteemed concert halls, conductor Simone Young leads a spellbinding concert of Russian and French masters. Hear one of the most colorful and evocative scores in all classical music: Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, a wondrous symphonic portrait of the fairy tale collection Arabian Nights. Also on the program, pianist Louis Lortie brings “total spontaneity” (The London Times) to Ravel’s jazz-infused Piano Concerto in G major.
