Principal Guest Conductor Stéphane Denève leads two weeks of concerts inspired by the glorious art of the Barnes Foundation. Albert Barnes and Leopold Stokowski were both importing the best of European culture into Philadelphia in the 1930s, with a shared desire to make that culture accessible to the public. They debated art and music in a series of letters; Stokowski even spoke at the dedication of the original Barnes Foundation building in Merion. This first program features two Stokowski orchestrations: “Adoramus te Christe” by Palestrina (a composer Barnes felt particular affinity for) and Debussy's “The Sunken Cathedral.” Concertmaster David Kim solos in Chausson's elegant Poème, and Debussy's La Mer paints an indelible picture of the sea. Additional festival events surrounding both concert weekends will be unveiled over the summer.
