On HIS FIRST EVER CONCERT PERFORMANCE
a FanFaire Interview
In this video, Jean-Yves takes us back to his childhood days as he recalls his early fascination with Ravel’s music and his first ever performance with an orchestra. He presents a picture of a precocious child, playing a Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G major in its entirety! Defitely NOT the obvious first choice even for a child of prodigious talent. It is quite a delightful narration.
The clip is an excerpt from FanFaire’s interview with Jean-Yves backstage at the Walt Disney Concert Hall on April 1, 2007 following his superb performance of Ravel’s Piano Concerto for the Left Hand with the LA Philharmonic conducted by Maestro Esa-Pekka Salonen. The complete interview is presented as a series of video clips.
