Spokane Symphony Masterworks 6: Music For Valentine’s Day

  • overview

    Event Details:

    JAMES LOWE, CONDUCTOR
    ALLEN VIZZUTTI, TRUMPET
    SPOKANE SYMPHONY CHORALE 

    Celebrate two of the most influential French composers of the early 20th century – Debussy and Ravel. Inspired by a series of impressionist paintings, Debussy’s colorful Nocturnes focus on the various impressions and special effects of light dancing on the drifting clouds and sea, and the mysterious songs of the Sirens. Daphnis et Chloé features some of Ravel’s most passionate work with extraordinary, lush harmonies throughout. The sweeping tale, drawn from Greek literature, tells of a shepherd and shepherdess discovering and exploring their love despite obstacles, separation, and adventure. Vizzutti will dazzle with Tomasi’s brilliantly difficult Concerto for Trumpet.

    Claude Debussy — Nocturnes
