Pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet performs Nov. 11th
- At Carnegie Hall, Stern Stage:
- November 11, 2015
- 8:00 PM
- Kinderszenen, Op. 15
Like Debussy, Schumann had a gift for seeing the world through the eyes of children. But the 13 pieces that make up his Kinderszenen offer more than fanciful visions of sugar plums. Schumann composed these uncomplicated miniatures in part as a love letter to his future wife, Clara Wieck.
- Piano Sonata #1, Op. 11
- Pavane for a Dead Princess.
From an early age, Ravel was marked to succeed Debussy as the poet laureate of French music. The two men shared a fondness for sensuous, impressionistic timbres and textures, but at heart, Ravel was a classicist. One of his most popular works, the Pavane pour une infante défunte exudes a mood of ceremonial sadness.
Ravel’s Miroirs are adventurous in their approach to harmony, form, and keyboard technique. Although the titles of the pieces drive pictorial imagery, Ravel is less concerned with traditional tone painting than with capturing the flickering reflections and textures in his musical “mirror.”
