Dukas: ‘La Péri’, Fanfare et Poème dansé
Debussy: Rapsodie pour orchestre et saxophone
Soloist Robert Burton
Brahms: Symphony No. 2, Op. 73
Dukas suggested that his La Péri should evoke ‘translucent, dazzling enamel’ with hints of Persia. Debussy’s Spanish-inspired Rhapsody for saxophone and orchestra is followed by Brahms’ radiantly sunny, transcendently lyrical Second Symphony. See you there!
