Ludovic Morlot leads the orchestra in Dvořák’s famous “New World” Symphony, and Jean-Yves Thibaudet lends his talents to Ravel’s whimsical Piano Concerto in G major.
Jean Yves Thibaudet will be signing CDs at intermission in the Grand Lobby.
The French conductor Ludovic Morlot has been Music Director of the Seattle Symphony since 2011. Amongst the many highlights of his tenure, the orchestra has won two Grammy Awards and gave an exhilarating performance at Carnegie Hall in 2014, as reported in the The New York Times: “The performance Mr. Morlot coaxed from his players was rich with shimmering colors and tremulous energy.”
Artist in residence, pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet is considered one of the best pianists in the world, and has the rare ability to combine poetic musical sensibilities with dazzling technical prowess.
Jean-Yves Thibaudet’s performance is generously underwritten by Sheila B. Noonan and Peter M. Hartley.
