Concert Information

The 20th century was truly a golden age in French music with a wealth of gloriously sumptuous and seductively perfumed harmony to be discovered. This concert reflects both the spiritual world of Poulenc, Duruflé and Messiaen, and the inspiration of French poetry on composers such as Françaix, Ravel and Debussy. From the rich, film-score sensuality of Poulenc’s Un soir de neige to the cheeky, experimental, helterskelter sound-world of Jolivet’s Épithalame, this is a perfect showcase for the virtuosity of the BBC Singers under their Chief Conductor David Hill.
