Esa-Pekka Salonen conductor
The City of Light series continues with Ravel’s beguiling fantasy opera of magic and enchantment in which animals and household objects come to life to teach a rebellious child the errors of his ways. Setting Colette’s text, Ravel’s luxuriant music is both witty and profound. His exuberantly jazzy G major Piano Concerto explores a rich palette of orchestral colours that juxtapose with the darker warmth of Dutilleux’s powerfully expressive song-cycle.
