Karina Canellakis conducts Ravel and Bartók Orchestre de Paris


American conductor Karina Canellakis (b. 1981) brings energy, precision, and expressiveness to two spectacular 20th-century favorites alongside an Orchestre de Paris in top form!

If the symphony is the abstract instrumental genre par excellence, why did Ravel, a formidable orchestrator, give the name “symphonie chorégraphique” to Daphnis et Chloé (1912)? Destined for the ballet stage and inspired by an ancient Greek romance about a young peasant couple who must navigate the troubled waters of love and romance, the lush and evocative work explores the possibilities of orchestration, mixing and alternating between different sections and instruments and resulting in a sonic explosion of color.
