An intoxicating evening of sumptuous music by three masterful orchestrators who knew how to bring every musical colour to dazzling life. There’s rarely a dry eye left in the house when Ravel’s tender Pavane is performed and the pleasure of summer nights spent sharing stories amongst friends is evoked by Berlioz’s gorgeous song cycle, Les nuits d’ete.
A virtuosic violin takes up the storyteller’s role in Scheherazade, opening a mesmeric book of hedonistic musical adventures, magical encounters and – of course – love.
