Sergueï Rachmaninov: Symphonic Dances
Henri Dutilleux’ composition Métaboles is a kind of hidden «concerto for orchestra», systematically offering each instrument group the chance to put its best foot forward. This is also true of Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances, which has clearly discernible programmatic components; even if the composer later expunged the movement titles Midday, Twilight and Night, several musical quotations and the atmosphere remain. Between these two works, Poulenc’s Concerto for Two Pianos is heard, played by the sisters Katia and Marielle Labèque. Under their hands, a graceful work comes alive which incorporates the attractive colours of Balinese music with Mozart allusions as well – all with a musical wink.
Ce concert sera enregistré par radio 100.7 et diffusé le 10 avril 2019.
