BSO - French Delicacies
Fauré Masques et Bergamasques
Ravel Mother Goose Suite
Saint-Saëns Symphony No.2
Thierry Fischer Conductor
Fauré’s effervescent suite although written at the end of a long career retains a lightness and freshness that makes his music stand out. Ravel’s equally exquisite orchestral version of Mother Goose utters a distinct melodic language among his works – fastidiously attuned to the subtlest delicacies. Saint-Saëns’ Symphony No.2 is, by any standards, an outright winner and deserves to be much better known. Elegantly crafted, it defies convention not least by basing the first movement on a fugue.
