Concert Details

Principal Guest Conductor Stéphane Denève leads two weeks of concerts inspired by both Leopold Stokowski, music director of The Philadelphia Orchestra, and Dr. Albert C. Barnes, founder of the Barnes Foundation. They were cultural pioneers, bringing the latest in art and music to Philadelphia in the early 1900s and presenting it in bold, new ways. This first program features two Stokowski orchestrations: “Adoramus te Christe” by Palestrina (a composer Barnes felt 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.
