RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra 2010-2011 Season
Friday 18 February, 8pm
at the National Concert Hall
Milhaud La Création du monde [16']
Honegger King David [74'] (Narrated in French)
Pascal Rophé's French journey continues, this time with the RTÉ Philharmonic Choir in a rarely performed French choral epic, King David. Honegger's Biblical treatment tells of the young David and his challenging journey through life.
By means of contrast, and encapsulating the French fondness for smaller-scale works, Milhaud's La Création du monde is probably one of the greatest, employing African folklore, New Orleans jazz and classical styles.
