Dutoit Conducts Ravel and D'Indy
Ravel, D'Indy, Franck
Saturday, March 14, 2015
Charles Dutoit leads the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in a program brimming with Gallic charm, color and variety. Canadian pianist Louis Lortie is the soloist in Franck’s beguiling Symphonic Variations and D’Indy’s delightful Symphony on a French Mountain Air. Bookending these works are two of Ravel’s most ravishing scores: the sensuous Rapsodie espagnole and the Second Suite from his ballet, Daphnis et Chloé, with its glorious opening dawn music.
These performances are made possible in part by a generous gift from the Arthur Maling Trust.
