Information

Lili Boulanger’s symphonic poem D’un matin de printemps opens a concert revolving around a composer who in her tragically short lifetime left an enduring legacy of works. Her D’un soir triste is a beautiful piece of late Romanticism, under which a yearning tension lies beneath in its bold chromaticism and disarmingly enchanting melodies.


Boulanger’s contemporary, Ravel, was a significant influence on the French tradition of the era. His Mother Goose Suite, as he put in his own words, evokes ‘the poetry of childhood’ with a sense of adventure and innocence in five charming fairy tale settings. Soloist Theodosia Ntokou performs Saint-Saëns’ Piano Concerto No. 2, a work with an exuberant display of stylistic variety where no two moments sound quite the same.


A grant from ABO Trust’s Sirens programme (supporting the promotion of music by historical women composers) has made possible the performance of Lili Boulanger’s D’un matin de printemps and D’un soir triste.


Duration: approx. 2 hours (incl. interval)
