Ravel Adagio assai

Maurice Ravel
Piano Concerto No. 1 in G, movement II Adagio assai
Performed by Leonard Bernstein and the National Orchestra of France
at the Théatre des Champs Elysées, Paris

Stop what you're doing. Turn the volume to maximum and give your complete attention to this performance of the second movement from Maurice Ravel's Piano Concerto No. 1 in G.

Leonard Bernstein's expression upon completion says it all. That went very well.

Bernstein's entire Ravel performances, including the most awesome Shéhérezade for mezzo and orchestra (with Marilyn Horne), are captured on DVD: Bernstein in Paris: The Ravel Concerts

As one reviewer says: "Such a performance gives a clear example why Leonard Bernstein became a legend in his own time."
