Orchestre de chambre de Paris Anniversary Concert - 40 years
From 7pm 
presentation of the concert by Nicolas Lafitte

At 8pm : Concert

Arthur Lavandier Le Périple d’Hannon (World creation for tenor and orchestra)
Britten Illuminations op. 18
Ravel Tzigane
Mozart Symphony No. 40 K. 550

This will be a heady evening of sound exploring three centuries of music. The wild dance from the finale of Mozart’s Symphony no. 40, the fantasy and insane virtuosity of Ravel’s Tzigane, and also the emotionally-charged poetry of Arthur Rimbaud’s Illuminations set to music by Benjamin Britten. Navigating from one repertoire to the next, like the Carthaginian explorer Hannon to whom the young composer Arthur Lavandier dedicated his creation, is the most spell-binding way to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of the Orchestre de chambre de Paris. This evening you will be invited to join in the excitement as we discover talented new performers including English tenor James Way, a protégé of Mark Padmore, and some surprise guests. But don’t let the cat out of the bag!
