Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, in partnership with Da Camera of Houston, presents "Double Take: Impressions of Ravel" to complement the museum's collection of Impressionist paintings and the exhibition John Singer Sargent: The Watercolors. The Impressionists and Sargent (1856–1925) are celebrated for capturing the fleeting moment, whether painting the landscape en plein air, capturing urban Europeans engaged in leisure activities, or in penetrating portraits.

French composer Maurice Ravel (1875–1937) is known as one of the masters of musical Impressionism. The Da Camera Young Artists and jazz saxophonist Woody Witt explore Ravel's stunning Piano Trio in A Minor from 1914 in its original form, followed by the Woody Witt Quartet's take on the work, an adaption for jazz quartet.

The Da Camera Young Artists are emerging professional instrumentalists, singers and composers dedicated to advocating for music in their communities throughout their careers. Woody Witt is one of Houston's most prominent jazz musicians, known for premiering new works that break down the barriers between classical music and jazz.
