Helene Grimaud Plays Ravel’s Concerto in G with LA Philharmonic

June 25, 2014

Tonight's Evening Concert features pianist Helene Grimaud playing Ravel's "Piano Concerto in G" with LA Philharmonic. Music Director Gustavo Dudamel conducts. Maestro Dudamel opens the program with Mozart's Serenata Notturna and ends with Mozart's 36th Symphony, the Linz, the symphony getting it's title from the fact that Mozart wrote it quite rapidly during a visit to the city of Linz in Austria.
