Ravel’s G Major Concerto with Grimaud
The critic Magnus Haglund of Göteborgs-Posten was quite impressed by the performance: “An extremely convincing reading of Ravel’s G Major concerto.” An inventive and colourful concerto from 1931, influenced by jazz rhythms, George Gershwin, Stravinsky and Basque folk music blended with softer, more mystical passages and a presto finale that’s not for the faint hearted. Qualities that Hélène Grimaud expresses with elegance, clarity and dexterity.
