The Orchestre de Paris celebrates 50 years
The always fantastique Orchestre de Paris celebrates its 50th anniversary in this gala evening, with a varied program to appeal to all tastes! Daniel Harding masterfully conducts an offbeat selection of works, beginning with Berio's Sinfonia, a heavily allusive work that cites texts by Claude Lévi-Strauss and Samuel Beckett as well as musical motifs by Stravinsky, Beethoven, and a host of others. The piece calls for eight amplified voices, and the London Voices fill their roles to perfection.
