A bittersweet, but nevertheless glamorous, opening night for music director Ludovic Morlot's final season with Seattle Symphony. Morlot should feel right at home with his fellow Frenchman, pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, playing Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, a perennial favorite that closes with one of the biggest bangs in all of symphonic music. After that, Thibaudet will bring the romance and high drama of Khachaturian’s Piano Concerto. You'll want to put on a suit, a dress, or a suit-dress for this one.
