TSO French Impressions

Stylish, witty, urbane.

About

Stylish, witty, urbane.

French music exhibits a very particular set of attributes, as can be heard in these debonair works by Ravel and Poulenc.

Ravel’s Piano Concerto is an energetic romp that pauses in its middle movement for one of the most transcendent adagios ever written.

Poulenc’s Sinfonietta – a “little” symphony – bustles with Gallic lightness and charm.

Contemporary Japanese composer Toshio Hosokawa takes the lotus flower as his starting point in Blossoming II.

The unfolding petals find their analogue in the organic musical structure of this spellbinding work.

Japanese conductor Kazuki Yamada and French pianist Cédric Tiberghien, who enthralled audiences on their last TSO co-appearance, make an eagerly awaited return.
