Beethoven, Jazz and Model Trains: Jean-Efflam Bavouzet's Favorite Things

KING FM’s Dave Beck takes you backstage with Jean-Efflam Bavouzet to talk about the things that fascinate the energetic and effusive French pianist.

Jean Efflam Bavouzet, this week’s guest pianist at the Seattle Symphony, has recorded the complete piano sonatas of Haydn, the complete piano concertos of Mozart, and all of the Prokofiev piano concertos. His passion for the piano might seem all-consuming, but Bavouzet finds time to savor everything from great jazz to the wonders of the world of model railroading.

The energetic and effusive French pianist shares a fascination for miniature mechanical devices with one of his musical heroes, Maurice Ravel. He talks about jazz, trains, Beethoven and more with Classical KING FM’s Dave Beck on this week’s Seattle Symphony Spotlight podcast.
