The French Connection - The Chase Wines Masterworks II



Fri, Nov 24th, 2017 to Sun, Nov 26th, 2017


7:30 pm


FEATURING: Timothy Chooi, violin REPERTOIRE Hector Berlioz, Les Troyens: Chasse royole et Oroge Edouard Lalo, Symphonie espagnole, Op. 21 * Camille Saint-Saens, Symphony No. 3 Op. 78, C minor

This concert celebrates the lush and visceral music of the French romantics before the impressionists came on the scene. Berlioz uses two sets of timpani to drench the Royal hunting party in a ferocious storm. Lalo imprints the influence of his Spanish heritage onto a Germanic structure in this symphonic concerto which will show off Timothy Chooi’s fiery technique. Saint-Saens added the king of instruments to elevate the impact of his Symphony No. 3. This is symphonic music of power and panache.
