St Cecilia Orchestra – French Impressions

  • Event Information

St Cecilia Orchestra

 

Conductor Xenophon Kelsey

Pianist: Roelof Temmingh

 

Debussy La Mer

Ravel Piano Concerto

Dukas Villanelle

Ysaÿe Harmonies du Soir

A programme bringing together the greatest of the French Impressionist composers: Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel.

Debussy’s symphonic work, La Mer, completed in 1905, is a rich and evocative depiction of the               underwater realm in three poetic movements. Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G  was composed following a tour of the USA. The influences of American Jazz are readily apparent in the outer movements, while the serene slow movement confirms Ravel’s status as a ‘master of melody’. St Cecilia Orchestra is joined by South African born pianist, Roelof Temmingh – described by Matthew Parris in The Times as playing ‘…like a musician twice his age, with the energy and passion of youth and the precision and fluency of a much more experienced soloist.’
