Program notes

Paavo Järvi leads the Orchestre de Paris for a 100% Fauré programme!

Central to the programme is Fauré's profound and graceful Requiem, which is complemented by the Cantique de Jean Racine and the rarely performed psalm-setting Super flumina Babylonis, all beautifully sung by the Chœur de l'Orchestre de Paris, and imbued with a delicate intensity by Järvi. With the expressive Pavane and Élégie for cello and orchestra, this is a luxurious all-Fauré event.

Baritone Matthias Goerne, soprano Chen Reiss, cellist Eric Picard and violinist Philippe Aïche come together at Paris's renowned Salle Pleyel for a concert of Fauré's works for chorus and orchestra. They are joined by the Orchestre de Paris under the baton of its musical director, the Grammy Awardwinning conductor Paavo Järvi.
