The internationally acclaimed Israel Philharmonic Orchestra takes the Hayes Hall stage under the direction of Principal Guest Conductor Gianandrea Noseda for a program of exquisite French composition. The program opens with Gabriel Fauré’s Pelléas et Mélisande, a suite derived from the incidental music the composer created for the Maurice Maeterlinck play that would later inspire works by Debussy, Schoenberg and Sibelius. Fauré’s suite is followed by two of Ravel’s most cherished forays into the form: the Mother Goose and second Daphnis et Chloé suites. Both suites are quintessential Ravel—radiantly orchestrated, expertly textured and full of wonder. The program concludes with Berlioz’s triumph, the Symphonie Fantastique. One of the most popular works in contemporary symphonic literature, the Symphonie Fantastique is Berlioz’s epic self-portrait, depicting the obsessions, dreams, tantrums and tenderness of an artist in love.
