Lionel Bringuier joins the Los Angeles Philharmonic on March 28, 29, 30 & 31, at Walt Disney Concert Hall, to conduct works by Gershwin and Ravel. Bringuier has an extensive history with the ensemble, becoming the youngest to be selected to serve as Assistant Conductor in 2007, and he was reappointed to the position under Gustavo Dudamel and promoted to Resident Conductor in 2011.
French pianist Hélène Grimaud, a fellow Philharmonic regular, joins Mr. Bringuier and the ensemble to perform Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G. Last week, Ms. Grimaud joined Lionel in concert with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and was praised for her “beautiful, glowing tone” (Dallas News) in Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto. Also on the program is Gershwin’s vibrant Cuban Overture, his tone poem An American in Paris, and Ravel’s set of eight waltzes Valses nobles et sentimentales. More information and tickets are available via the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
