French Connections

Zelman Symphony Orchestra

Zelman Symphony opens its 2018 season with a tribute to Claude Debussy, who passed away exactly a century ago. As well as his iconic Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune, we feature works by the contemporaries he influenced - Fauré, Ravel and Stravinsky. We welcome highly regarded Melbourne pianist Caroline Almonte, a graduate of the Juilliard School in New York and a member of the Sutherland Trio, in Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G. And the climax of this program will be Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite, full of colour and mystery, a fitting tribute to Debussy. Artists: Rick Prakhoff - conductor Caroline Almonte - piano Program: Fauré – Pelléas et Mélisande Suite Debussy arr Ravel – Sarabande Ravel - Piano Concerto in G Debussy – Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune Stravinsky - Firebird Suite (1945 version)
