Ravel – Ma Mère l’Oye (Mother Goose)
Saint-Saëns – Piano Concerto No. 2 in G minor
Schumann – Symphony No. 2 in C major

Ingrid Fliter stares into you soul as well as she plays the music of it.

Experience the wonder of childhood through Ravel’s magical Mother Goose, which brings centuries-old fairy tales to life with flights of fantasy and music of uncommon delicacy. Schumann’s Second Symphony, which the composer wrote even as he struggled with depression, anxiety, and poor health, is the sound of one human soul rallying against the forces of fate, with a triumphant spirit that recalls Beethoven’s Fifth.
