Mother Goose Suite, Ravel

Salonen Conducts Ravel

May9
8:00 PM
Ravel, Debussy
Saturday, May 9, 2015

In this first program of the 2015 Reveries and Passions Festival, Esa-Pekka Salonen couples an early Debussy work with two Ravel pieces inspired by youth. The Mother Goose Suite, a radiant collection of musical tales from Tom Thumb to Beauty and the Beast, expresses considerable depth of feeling despite its deceptively simple exterior. A fantasy opera in one act about childhood, L'enfant et les sortilèges (The Child and Magic Spells) presents an enchanting and poignant story about a rude child who learns compassion.

This program is part of the 2015 Reveries and Passions Festival.

The CSO is grateful to Julie and Roger Baskes, lead sponsors of our Reveries and Passions Festival.
