Esa-Pekka Salonen Conductor
Salonen Karawane, for chorus and orchestra
Ravel Daphnis and Chloe (complete ballet)
Mesmerizing soundscapes with famed conductor and composer Esa-Pekka Salonen! In his mischievous Karawane, the “chorus’s hypnotic incantations have the undergirding of a glistening orchestral landscape, sometimes swaying, sometimes blooming” (The New York Times). It’s the perfect first course for the fantastic feast of music to come: the complete score of Ravel’s achingly beautiful Daphnis and Chloe. With its transfixing lyricism and unique orchestration (including wind machine and wordless chorus), this sensual, evocative classic conjures up a mystical world where love is all.
