Stéphane Denève’s first concert as SLSO Music Director is a joyous celebration, which includes the world premiere of a piece the SLSO commissioned in his honor. Gershwin’s much-loved An American in Paris is conducted by a Frenchman in St. Louis. Denève introduces the SLSO’s first Artist-in-Residence, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, who plays a concerto that sparkles and swings, and Debussy shows off the color and vitality of this great orchestra and its new leader.
