America, Inspiring: Ravel & Rachmaninoff

ANDREW CONSTANTINE conductor

TERRENCE WILSON piano

NEW JERSEY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

The searing energy of jazz, the speed and power of a fighter plane – these emblems of American ingenuity captured the imagination of Ravel and Martinů. Acclaimed pianist Terrence Wilson, a Montclair resident, dazzles in Ravel’s colorful concerto.

MARTINŮ Thunderbolt P-47 (NJSO Premiere)

A stirring homage by a Czech composer to his adopted home, the USA; a tribute to the eponymous aircraft and its brave pilots.

RAVEL Piano Concerto in G Major

After Ravel met Gershwin in New York, he went back to Europe to write this jazzy, mesmerizing concerto.

RACHMANINOFF Symphonic Dances

Bursting with energy; with nods to Russian liturgical chant and American jazz.
