National Symphony Orchestra: Eschenbach conducts Ravel's Boléro / Carpenter plays Poulenc
7:00 PM, 8:00 PM
Christoph Eschenbach returns once more to lead an all-French program featuring Ravels famous Boléro. The sultry slow-burn never fails to excite audiences, unfolding with increasingly rich combinations in the longest-sustained crescendo of any orchestral work. Rock star organist Cameron Carpenter, a modern-day throwback to the flamboyant virtuosos of the 19th century (NPR), joins the Orchestra in Poulencs vibrant Organ Concerto.
