Bizet’s first symphony, composed when he was only 17 years old, abounds in youthful enthusiasm. Canadian ambassador of jazz Lorraine Desmarais joins forces with the Orchestra in a performance of a classical piece—a rare occurrence for this artist --- Ravel’s Concerto in G! This work reflects Ravel’s fascination with Afro-American music, which he discovered during a tour of the United States, in 1928.
