Pascal Rophé conductor
This 2010-2011 season marks the beginning of a journey to explore French orchestral repertoire with Pascal Rophé over three years, starting with works by Ravel and Debussy, cornerstones of the French repertory.
A haunting, beautiful movement in Nocturnes includes ladies of the RTÉ Philharmonic Choir in a wordless chorus, while Richard Strauss' Don Quichotte, featuring just the solo cello in imaginative variations, portrays the chivalrous knight riding out on his madcap adventures.
