Louis Langrée returns to lead this feast of French favorites, some of them especially attuned to the spooky season! Dukas's The Sorcerer's Apprentice, immortalized in Fantasia, returns on subscription. The Saint-Saëns is delightfully macabre. And Franck's Accursed Huntsman tells the cautionary tale of a hunter who broke the Sabbath, to his eternal regret. Kirill Gerstein (“Flat out fabulous!”—Cleveland Classical) solos in Ravel's Piano Concerto in G major, another European work inspired by American jazz. And that composer's lush, passionate Daphnis and Chloé provides a romantic glow concluding with its famously raucous bacchanal.
