Romance de Paris
The Beautiful Era in France
Danse Slav from The King in Spite of Himself
Clair de lune
Gaite Parisienne (complete)
Our season opens with an elegant souvenir which captures the excitement, color and romance of late 19th century Paris, from the alluring beauty of Debussy’s beloved Clair de lune to Offenbach’s dazzling, tuneful ballet Gaite Parisienne. Named after a famous nightclub in fin du siècle (end of the century) Paris, this sparkling pastiche includes a riotous succession of dances—polkas, waltzes, quadrilles and, yes, Offenbach’s zesty Can-can—all packaged in Manuel Rosenthal’s brilliant orchestration. Even the world’s greatest “serious” conductors—von Karajan, Ormandy and Maazel—couldn’t resist the sheer hilarity and infectious joy of this music! As an added bonus, sensational young violinist Zachary Brandon will explore the charm and mystique of Saint-Saëns’ exotic Havanaise.
