Performance Details

Yannick Nézet-Séguin Conductor

Ravel Le Tombeau de Couperin
Ravel Mother Goose Suite  
Bizet Symphony No. 1

Yannick returns to the Digital Stage for an enchanting performance of works by Ravel and Bizet that pairs perfectly with the sweetness of the summer season. 

Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin opens the performance with graceful reflection, dedicated to the composer’s friends lost in the First World War. Ravel’s charming Mother Goose Suite invites the audience to remember beloved childhood stories such as Beauty and the Beast, Tom Thumb, and Sleeping Beauty in a work filled with radiance and wonder.

Georges Bizet composed his First Symphony at age 17 during his studies at the Paris Conservatory, though it wasn’t premiered until some 80 years later. Listen for moments reminiscent of Gounod, Mozart, Rossini, and Schubert in this lively, melodic work. 

All Digital Stage events begin with a performance premiere, streaming in real time. Following the performance premiere, the concert will be available for ticket holders to watch on demand for one week.
