Ravel’s “Bolero” is one of the most recognizable and riveting pieces of classical music — and it’s not just about Bo Derek and the 1979 movie “10.” Its progressive phrases build to a satisfying musical crescendo with an unparalleled intensity.

The evening will explore the work of Maurice Ravel with pianist Spencer Myer, who will play two concerti: the jazz-influenced Piano Concerto in G and Piano Concerto for the Left Hand, commissioned by an Austrian pianist who lost his right arm during World War I.
