Why See St. Louis Symphony - La Valse?
Acclaimed conductor Stephane Deneve marks his first appearance as the STL Symphony's Music Director Designate with a program that delves into the composers of his native France. Dominated by Ravel and reaching a revelling finale with his homage to the Waltz, La Valse, the recital will also feature the Symphony debut of sisters Michelle and Christina Naughton as they take on Poulenc's Concerto for 2 Pianos and Orchestra.
The pinnacle of his fascination with the genre, La Valse is a vigorous and joyful piece that evokes not just the steps but the atmosphere of a ballroom full of whirling dancers. Alongside, you'll hear his tribute to Schubert: Valse nobles et sentimentales, the Mother Goose suite and Connesson's 2016 Flammenschrift.
Performance date: 2 February 2018
