The Muse and the Poet

The Muse and the Poet

Sat, 14 Nov 2015, 7.30pm
Esplanade Concert Hall

OVERVIEW

The husband-and-wife duo of Jan Vogler and Mira Wang return with a pair of contrasting works: Saint-Saëns’ charming La Muse et le Poète for violin, cello and orchestra; and a new Double Concerto by Grawemeyer Award-winning composer Wolfgang Rihm, co-commissioned by the SSO, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and the Friends of Dresden Music Foundation. The second half features two atmospheric works by Claude Debussy: Jeux and Nocturnes, of which the sensuous orchestration is testament to Debussy’s unsurpassed reputation for painting orchestral pictures.

 

“Mr. Vogler pushed the expressive envelope to extremes.” – The New York Times
