December 2, 8pm: All-French Program
Ludovic Morlot’s next program with the Seattle Symphony is an all-French evening based on the idea of the sacred and profane---the heavenly and earthly realms in life and music. Ludovic’s program explores the sacred function of music through the much loved “Requiem” by Gabriel Fauré, composed for funeral services at the Cathedral of Sainte Madeleine in Paris. Olivier Messiaen’s “Poèmes Pour Mi” delves into the deep love for nature and music that the composer shared with his violinist-wife. And SSO principal harpist Valerie Muzzolini-Gordon explores both earthly and heavenly realms as she solos with her orchestra colleagues in Debussy’s “Sacred and Profane Dances” for harp and strings.
