A Grand Banquet of Masterpieces

His two concert programs are filled with music of exquisite taste, such as the complete ballet score of Ravel's "Daphnis et Chloé," known for its delicate, colorful orchestration, and Bartók's masterful Concerto for Orchestra, featuring distinctive soloistic music for each instrument, along with many more.
