Sir Simon Rattle, conductor
Sir Simon Rattle conducts an evocative programme featuring masterful works by three pre-eminent French composers of the 20th century.
Delage's rarely heard Four Hindu Poems is a set of sparse, jewel-like miniatures for small ensemble and soprano. It is set alongside masterpieces by Ravel and Dutilleux, including Dutilleux's violin concerto L'arbre des songes (Tree of Dreams), performed by Leonidas Kavakos, and Ravel's Daphnis and Chloe Suite No 2, which the composer described as a 'symphonie choreographique'.
