Hélène returns to Davies Symphony Hall on February 15 and 16 with conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Rotterdam Philharmonic. The Sunday concert begins at 7pm and features Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 1 and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5. On Monday night at 8pm, the program opens with Ravel’s Ma Mère l’Oye (Mother Goose), followed by his Piano Concerto in G major, and concludes with Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 5.
