Bernstein, Prokofiev and Ravel are three of a kind — cheeky, irrepressible, brazen and poetic. This Atlanta Symphony Orchestra concert features Taiwanese-Australian violinist Ray Chen, a musician "to die for," according to the Huffington Post). Chen plays the smart and chic Violin Concerto No. 2 by Sergei Prokofiev ("the bad boy of Russian music"). The program opens with Leonard Bernstein's witty "Divertimento" and includes Henri Dutilleux's
Métaboles and Maurice Ravel's La valse. French-born conductor Ludovic Morlot, music director of the Seattle Symphony, is on the podium.
