Bring your devices and help us explore a new way of experiencing an orchestra.
This evening:As part of our 50th anniversary celebrations, we go back to the French Baroque for the last concert of this series.
In this special celebratory event, the orchestra will perform Jean-Féry Rebel’s 1737 ballet score The Elements, and Maurice Ravel’s early 20th Century ballet-tribute to his great Baroque predecessor François Couperin. Alongside these are Thomas Adès’ contemporary orchestrations of Couperin, and late romantic composer Richard Strauss’ own 1941 arrangement of Couperin, his Divertimento.
