The Gallic Lightness of Ravel, Poulenc, and Connesson


This weekend, Music Director Designate Stéphane Denève leads the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra in works by Maurice Ravel, Francis Poulenc, and Guillaume Connesson. The special guest pianists Christina and Michelle Naughton perform Poulenc’s Concerto for Two Pianos and Orchestra.

If you can’t make it to Powell Hall, be sure to tune in at 8 PM CST to St. Louis Public Radio. That’s FM 90.7 for those of you in the broadcast range, or you can follow the livestream here:

My program notes can be read on the SLSO website, in the Plan Your Visit section, but here’s a slightly longer version for people who prefer the somewhat more prolix version of me.
