On her upcoming US tour that includes three dates in Houston, TX (November 19, 20, 21), two in Seattle, WA (December 2 & 4), and two in Naples, FL (December 9 & 11) Hélène performs one of the greatest of all French masterworks, Ravel’s jazz-infused Concerto in G. From the opening whip crack to the mesmerizing second movement and a jaunty whirlwind of a finale, this is piano virtuosity at its most colorful and captivating. The tour concludes on January 9, 2022 with a recital featuring works by Frédéric Chopin, Claude Debussy, Valentin Silvestrov, and Erik Satie at San Francisco’s Davies Symphony Hall.
