ELGAR — Froissart Overture
RAVEL — Piano Concerto in G Major
SIBELIUS — Symphony No. 2 in D Major

Featuring Anna Polonsky, Piano

Three iconic works from the late romantic era and early 20th Century, each of which defines the style of music of their nation. Edward Elgar pays tribute to Jean Froissart, whose Chronicles described the great era of chivalry, while Jean Sibelius stokes the patriotic conscience of his native Finland. Meanwhile, nobody represents the French style more than Maurice Ravel in his Piano Concerto in G Major, which flirts with influences of American Jazz and the music of George Gershwin.
