Grammy Award-winning conductor JoAnne Falletta returns to Sarasota for this colorful program. Ravel originally composed his beloved Mother Goose Suite for the children of dear friends. The sounds of the Charleston, ragtime, and blues pervade Gershwin's unforgettable Piano Concerto. Pianist Aaron Diehl brings the work's infectious rhythms and melodies to life. The concert concludes with Rachmaninoff's technicolor Symphonic Dances, a vibrant work that ranks among his most thrilling compositions.
