Lush and luminous as the title implies, gifted newcomer Nicolas Chuaqui’s confident work opens the season before Mozart’s astonishing concerto takes center stage. Sounding far more like a late-period masterpiece than the youthful work it is, this mysteriously obscure piano showpiece was once (and rightly!) described by Alfred Brendel as “among the greatest wonders of the world.” Arthur Honegger’s irresistible musical travelogue enjoys a welcome reprise as a past Riverside favorite.
