In this stylistically rich concert, the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Yiorgos Kountouris will perform works of the French musical romanticism.
The program will open with Gabriel Fauré’s enchanting Pavane, which evokes “haunting echoes of Spain's Golden Age”, according to Léonid Massine who choreographed it for the Ballets Russes.
In the featured concerto, the outstanding Lithuanian cellist Robertas Grod will interpret Saint-Saëns’ cello concerto no. 1, which raised the composer’s popularity among French musical circles. The concert will round off in yet more French elegance with George Bizet’s masterful First Symphony, a tribute to his teacher, Charles Gounod.
