Spokane Symphony Classics: A Kaleidoscope of French Virtuosity

Spokane Symphony Classics: A Kaleidoscope of French Virtuosity

Eckart Preu, conductor

What better way to commemorate the 80th anniversary of Maurice 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. Stravinsky praised Florent Schmitt’s Tragedy of Salome, calling it "one of the greatest masterpieces of modern music." The concert includes Richard Dubugnon’s XIX "Le Soleil" from Arcanes Symphoniques. Come an hour early for the pre-concert lecture.
