Postcards from Paris

Part of Classical Season 2020/21

Don’t just wish you were here – join the London Philharmonic Orchestra for extravagant French music.

Imagine a gothic cathedral looming out of the twilight. Picture an impressionist landscape beneath pastel skies.

And now think of Belle-Époque Paris in all its ritzy, raucous colour.

That’s a very rough idea of what it’s like to hear César Franck’s Symphony in D minor – for decades, one of the world’s most popular classics.

Our Paris-born conductor Fabien Gabel is bringing it back tonight: the crowning glory of a Gallic-flavoured concert that begins with a sumptuous overture by the composer of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and stars the Jussen brothers dream team in Poulenc’s unashamedly entertaining Double Concerto.

Naughty – but nice.
