Ravel’s Tombeau de Couperin, so familiar to me from the Balanchine ballet of the same title, was given what can only be described as a gorgeous performance by the New Orchestra of Washington. Maestro Alejandro Hernandez-Valdez drew rich, warm sounds from the musicians: the strings are splendid, the solos wind players excellent (notably Stephen Key, oboe, and Lillian Copeland, English Horn), the harpist (Eric Sabatino) sublime.
