Louis Langrée leads the Orchestra and French pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet in Bartók’s lyrical Third Piano Concerto, a work that includes echoes of the call of a bird Bartók heard during a winter he spent in the mountains of North Carolina. The Concerto is paired with Witold Lutosławski’s Musique funèbre, a reverential work that the composer dedicated “à la mémoire de Béla Bartók,” and the evening ends with Mozart’s Symphony No. 39.
This performance is approximately one hour and 25 minutes long, with one intermission.

“Bavouzet achieved an almost Mozartian eloquence...electrifying and flawless.
