BOULANGER D'un soir triste
RAVEL Mother Goose: Suite

Alexander Shelley Conductor
Theodosia Ntokou Piano

Lili Boulangers symphonic poem D'un matin de printemps opens a concert revolving around a composer who in her tragically short lifetime left an enduring legacy of works. Her Dun soir triste is a beautiful piece of late Romanticism, under which a yearning tension lies beneath in its bold chromaticism and disarmingly enchanting melodies.

Boulangers contemporary, Ravel, is a significant influence the French tradition of the era. His Mother Goose: Suite, as he put in his own words, evokes the poetry of childhood with a sense of adventure and innocence in five charming fairy tale settings. Soloist Theodosia Ntokou performs Saint-Sans Piano Concerto No.2, a work with an exuberant display of stylistic variety where no two moments sound quite the same.
