This appearance, the second of two in West Palm Beach by the versatile BBC Concert Orchestra and principal conductor Keith Lockhart, presented a program of music by Ravel and three English composers, all played with idiomatic charm and warm affection. Charlie Albright, who joins the BBCCO on its tour of fourteen American cities, gave an exciting account of Ravel’s G major Piano Concerto and thrilled the audience with a brilliantly improvised encore.
