2021 Symphony Gala

International superstar pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet brings his rock-star panache to Jacksonville, performing one of his signature piano concertos with roots in America’s greatest musical gift to the world: jazz. Inspired by the American style’s adoption in Europe, Maurice Ravel’s G major Concerto features jazzy opening and closing movements that bracket a resplendent middle movement where time seems to stand still. Thibaudet follows with Gershwin’s variations on perhaps his most famous tune, “I Got Rhythm.”
