Francis Poulenc: Gloria
Maurice Ravel: Daphnis et Chloé (complete)
Principal Conductor of the RPO, Charles Dutoit, is renowned for his exceptional interpretations of 20th-century music, including his definitive recording of Ravel's ballet Daphnis et Chloé.
This is an opportunity to see, and hear, Dutoit guide the Royal Philharmonic through the complete ballet.
Ravel's score is an evocative, sensual masterpiece, full of precisely articulated colours and seductive sonorities.
Also performed is Poulenc's Gloria – one of his finest works, brimming with rich harmony, sinuous melodies and rhythmic verve.
Dutoit and the RPO are joined by the Philharmonia Chorus and soprano Nicole Cabell for this glorious programme.Performers
