Beginning of the “Musical Journey”
For the opening of its new season, the MCPO will begin its “Musical Journey” with Kazuki Yamada, who will lead his orchestra accompanied by Russian pianist Boris Berezovsky and the Choir of the Orchestre de Paris. As an opening to this concert, you will hear “Gigues”, an extract of Claude Debussy’s “Images”, then Franz Liszt’s Concerto for Piano #1 and “Totentanz” with, in closing, “Daphnis et Chloé”, a choreographic symphony for choir and orchestra. With this program, the OPMC will pay homage to Claude Debussy for the centenary of his death, as well as to Maurice Ravel for the 80th anniversary of his death. Liszt’s Piano Concerto #1 is one of his most famous works and “Totentanz” is known as one of the most difficult scores for the piano. Virtuoso pianist Boris Berezovsky is the ideal interpreter for them. The magical character of “Daphnis et Chloé”, a vast musical fresco, will enchant you with its infinite diversity in rhythms and colors. This concert has been organized with the generous support of the Friends of the Orchestra.
