About This Performance

“As usual, Camilo's pianism is remarkable, not only where
technique is concerned, but moreover, for the range and
beauty of his sound. The many moods Camilo conveys
could not be achieved without his control of the instrument
at its most intimate level.” – Billboard

“Camilo's playing has a Classical feel, making full use of his
left hand and exhibiting phenomenal control of dynamics.
Thunderous chords yielded seamlessly to exquisitely soft
passages, and a stupendous end to the medley earned
Camilo a standing ovation.” – The Boston Globe

Featured in the Disney film Fantasia and based on a poem by Goethe, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice tells the story of a young apprentice who uses magical spells he has not yet learned to control. Pianist Michel Camilo, whose musical flair combines elements of classical, jazz and world music, performs his own Piano Concerto No. 2 as soloist.  Conductor Leonard Slatkin presents several works that demonstrate Ravel’s penchant for reinterpreting the music of traditional dance forms, including his famous Boléro.

*Please note the March 15th performance is part of the “Behind the Notes” program.   Also, please note that Michel Camilo will not be appearing on this performance. Click here for more information about programming details, soloists and concert information for the March 15th Behind the Notes.
