In this week’s episode of See the Music, NYCB Music Director Andrew Litton introduces us to the score of Jerome Robbins’ In G Major: Maurice Ravel’s Piano Concerto from 1931. With live demonstrations on the piano, Litton explores the American influences and jazzy nuances of this late work from the French impressionist composer, relating which passage he considers “achingly beautiful” and his personal connection to the piece.
