One of the distinguishing features of French music is its careful use of tone. From Jean-Philippe Rameau to spectralism, Héctor Berlioz and Claude Debussy, you can find a refined and opulent conception of instrumentation and orchestration, with particular focus on playing with tone. Georges Bizet wrote his first symphony when he was only seventeen. This work remained unknown until 1935, when it was hailed as one of the main works of 19th-century French music.

Program

Claude Debussy’s Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune takes its name from the eponymous poem by Stéphane Mallarmé. Its musical fragments treated as a succession of sketches of pantheistic scenes make this work crucially relevant to understanding both last century’s orchestral music and modern dance based on Vaslav Nijinsky’s choreography of the piece.
Marc-André Dalbavie’s flute concerto, which he dedicated to Emmanuel Pahud, is a bold search for the possibilities of tone and the sound process as drivers of a virtuosity that is never redundant.
