ECKART PREU, CONDUCTOR

What better way to commemorate the 80th anniversary of Ravel's death than listening to some of his greatest works! La Valse parodies the waltz, symbol of Austrian-Hungarian imperialism; Rhaposie espagnole is a portrait of Spain painted in four dances; and Boléro is 15-minutes of a simple melody that builds through orchestration, ending in a burst of fireworks. Also on the program are Schmitt’s Tragedy of Salome, which Stravinsky praised as "one of the greatest masterpieces of modern music," and "Le Soleil" from Richard Dubugnon's Arcanes Symphoniques.
