French Fancies

Part of Classical Season 2018/19

‘Shepherdess, if you love me, come soothe my pain’.

Joseph Canteloube took the old songs of rural France and uncovered their tender soul. His ravishing Songs of the Auvergne are the warm, sensuous heart of a whole evening of French delights.

It ranges from Berlioz’s whirling celebration of the carnival spirit to the youthful zest of the teenage Bizet’s ebullient Symphony in C.

Anna Caterina Antonacci (‘an exceptional artist’ – The Guardian) sings, and Enrique Mazzola gives an irresistible swing to Gershwin’s An American in Paris.

Seen the show? Now enjoy the jazz-infused masterpiece that inspired it, in full orchestral Technicolor.
