Mandle Philharmonic Orchestra – Saturday Night Ravel
March 28, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G Major was written after he visited jazz clubs in Harlem and New Orleans. It is known for its inclusion of numerous jazz elements.
Mussgorsky composed Pictures at an Exhibition as a tribute to his friend Viktor Hartmann, the artist and architect, after visiting a memorial exhibit of his work. Each movement of the composition is his interpretation of one of Hartmann’s works. While Mussgorsky original work was written for piano, Mandle Phil will be performing Ravel’s orchestral derivation.
Ravel’s most famous composition is his orchestral work Boléro. Originally written as a ballet, it will forever be synonymous with Torvill and Dean, and their gold medal-winning Olympic ice-skating performance.
