About This Performance

“Valentina Lisitsa combines an imperious sweep with aristocratic poise and sensitivity”
Music Web International

Ukrainian-born pianist and YouTube phenom Valentina Lisitsa performs Grieg’s much-loved Piano Concerto.  The second half of the program features a musical trip to the Mediterranean.  One of Ravel’s first works for orchestra, Rapsodie Espagnole, was inspired by the Spanish folk tunes sung by his mother when Ravel was a child.  Alassio is a town on the Italian Riviera where Elgar and his family vacationed and is the inspiration for In the South.  Elgar depicts the awe-inspiring landscape in this concert overture.
