Sir Antonio Pappano conductor
Eric Chan organ
RCM Symphony Orchestra

L Boulanger D’un matin de printemps
Ravel Une barque sur l'océan from Miroirs
Ravel Alborada del gracioso from Miroirs
Ravel Ma mère l'Oye
Saint-Saëns Symphony no 3 in C minor op 78

The Royal Opera’s Music Director Sir Antonio Pappano leads the RCM Symphony Orchestra in a thrilling evening of French music, culminating in Saint-Saens’s Symphony no 3 to showcase the full range of the RCM’s organ.

Orchestrated movements from Ravel’s Miroirs suite invoke the swaying trance of a boat on the ocean waves in Une barque sur l’océan and a Spanish jester’s flamboyant dance in Alborada del gracioso.

D’un matin de printemps was the final piece completed by Lili Boulanger before her untimely death. As a prolific musician the piece is no doubt informed by her wide understanding of instruments and styles, with a strong nod to impressionism.
