"A whirlwind of dancers becoming ever more passionate and exhausting, brought to life and carried away by the waltz." With these words, Maurice Ravel tried to explain to a Dutch journalist what La Valse meant to him. Wasn't it about the end of an era, wasn't it an exhilarating dream about death and decadence? Yes, you can hear all of that in it, but Ravel primarily brought a brilliant French ode to the Viennese waltz.

This French-influenced program, full of orchestral colors and stirring melodies, is in excellent hands with our emerging Taiwanese maestro. With piano virtuoso Denis Kozhukhin ("dazzling," according to the Chicago Tribune) in Rachmaninov's devilishly virtuosic Paganini Rhapsody. A concert you won't want to miss!
