Jean-Yves Thibaudet plays Saint-Saëns’s Piano Concerto No. 5

Jean-Yves Thibaudet plays Saint-Saëns’s Piano Concerto No. 5
April 19-22
San Francisco Symphony
The French conductor Stéphane Denève and French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet will perform two works by French composers—Saint-Saëns’s Piano Concert No.5 and Roussel’s Spider’s Feast— in four concerts.
Jean-Yves Thibaudet, who combines “an often wild virtuosity with an almost relaxed grace” (Chicago Sun-Times), performs Saint-Saëns “Egyptian” Piano Concerto, its nickname owing to its exotic display of melodies and harmonies. The influences on Roussel’s first ballet were not just the spiders of the title but insects of all types—the result yielding “the magical elegance of Ravel and the sultriness of Debussy.” (Arkivmusic.com). These works are joined by Stravinsky’s dramatic Firebird Suite, an evergreen that yields unparalleled thrills!
