Mercury Orchestra performs Ravel
August 18, 2012
Maurice Ravel: Le tombeau de Couperin
Maurice Ravel: Daphnis et Chloé (complete ballet)
Channing Yu, conductor
The Mercury Orchestra celebrates the 100th anniversary of the premiere of Ravel’s magnificent ballet Daphnis et Chloé, a tableau of dazzling orchestral colors depicting the passionate love between the goatherd Daphnis and shepherdess Chloé. The orchestra will present the seldom performed complete ballet version of this work in concert. Le tombeau de Couperin is Ravel’s delightful homage to the graceful beauty of the baroque French Suite form.
