About the Performance
Legacies are important pathways to the future. American composer David Diamond honors Ravel with his noble outpouring of grief, Elegy in Memory of Maurice Ravel. We hear from Diamond’s inspiration, Ravel, in his harp concerto. Britten’s The Sword in the Stone Concert Suite, a charming work written for a BBC radio dramatization, is paired with Arvo Pärt’s melodic tribute to Britten, Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten.
