About this Performance

Like Rhapsody in Blue, Gershwin’s An American in Paris is iconic – a warm, jazz-infused tour through Paris that will put a smile on your face and get your foot tapping. Jazz influences continue in Ravel’s Concerto for the Left Hand - written for a pianist injured in the First World War performed here by the extraordinary pianist Cédric Tiberghien. Poulenc’s Suite from Les biches (The Does) was originally written for Serge Diaghilev and his famous “Ballet Russe”.
