National Symphony Orchestra – Wolf Trap

“Ravel’s Concerto in G and Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” … the young, energetic conductor Lionel Bringuier led the National Symphony Orchestra … Bringuier, meanwhile, let the winds linger lasciviously, gleefully over every note, especially in the Gershwin, before moving on to a long, slow, loving, elegant, slightly soporific account of Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition.”
