Crossing Europe – visiting France

30.09.2018

17:00

Philharmonie 
Grand Auditorium

The “French” concert of our European trip starts with Claude Debussy’s famous « Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun», whose 100th anniversary is celebrated in 2018. Moving on to Luxor with Camille Saint-Saëns’ Fifth Concerto for piano and orchestra known as “L’Egyptien”, an evocation of memories of the Nile.
On the piano: Joseph Moog, nominated for the Grammy Awards in 2016 and “already one of the most brilliant pianists” (Bryce Morrison, Gramophone). Then, make way for the subtle sounds of Maurice Ravel’s Tombeau de Couperin, a small masterpiece of orchestration and a great success of the Swedish Ballets in 1920. This first OCL concert in the Philharmonic’s Grand Auditorium is conducted by the first female conductor to win the prestigious Georg Solti Competition: Shiyeon Sung, a highly acclaimed assistant to James Levin at the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
