City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra

Edinburgh Festival Chorus
Christopher Bell | Chorus Director
Stravinsky | Funeral Song
Stravinsky | Symphonies of Wind Instruments
Debussy | Prelude a l’apres-midi d’un faune
Ravel | Daphnis et Chloe
Sensuous, sumptuous and full of dazzling colour. Beguiling ballet scores by Debussy and Ravel bookend the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra’s vibrant concert.
Debussy’s bewitching Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune tells of hedonistic daydreams and sensual indolence. Ravel’s lavish Daphnis et Chloé – featuring the Edinburgh Festival Chorus – paints vivid scenes of nymphs, pirates and euphoric dances in one of music’s most opulent creations.
To start is the brooding power of Stravinsky’s sonorous Funeral Song, alongside the bracing austerity of his miniature Symphony for the massed forces of 23 wind and brass players.
