Why See The Philadelphia Orchestra - French Tales?

Joyeux Halloween

French fancy abounds in this deliciously dark program celebrating fables, fantasies and more for the spookiest season of the year. With Louis Langree taking up the baton once more and an appearance from Kirill Gerstein, savor the sounds of Saint-Saens, Dukas, Ravel and Dukas in this perfect warm-up for All Hallows Eve.


Saint-Saens - Danse macabre
Death leads the recently departed in a captivating dance in this iconic piece from the whimsical Camille Saint Saens.

Franck - The Accursed Huntsman
A hubristic Count defies the Sabbath to go hunting, an act that leads to eternal damnation, in this demonic fantasy

Dukas - The Sorcerer's Apprentice
A wizard's young charge learns the danger of ignoring one's master as chaos reigns in Dukas's Fantasia centerpiece.

Ravel - Piano Concerto in G major
American Jazz inspires Ravel's slick Piano Concerto

Ravel - Suite No. 2 from Daphnis and Chloe
One of Ravel's most popular works, romance meets the spirits of the woods in a pagan flavored carnival.
