The last time the French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet made a guest appearance  with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra was in 2013, when he took on the challenging piano part of Olivier Messiaen’s Turangalîla Symphony under the baton of Mariss Jansons. Now the two musicians will again join forces, this time in Maurice Ravel’s brilliant G major Piano Concerto. This jazz-drenched jeu d’esprit of Mozartian elegance is a bravura piece for any pianist, but especially one from France. In a nod to Ravel’s Basque origins, Jansons will precede the concerto with the popular Spanish triptych Ibéria from Claude Debussy’s orchestral cycle Images. Bustling crowds, fiery dance rhythms and beclouded landscapes are also found in Nuages and Fêtes, the first two of Debussy’s Trois Nocturnes. The climax of Jansons’s programme comes at the end with the suite from Béla Bartók’s breath-taking ballet-pantomime The Miraculous Mandarin, a symbol of the breakaway mood in early 20th-century music. Bartók’s erotic frenzy provoked a fully-fledged scandal at its Cologne première in 1926, not only for its garish score, but because of its squalid subject-matter, which deals with prostitution, robbery and murder in an urban milieu.
