The French magic of Stéphane Denève
- Albert Roussel Bacchus et Ariane: Suite no. 2
- Richard Rijnvos Australia (world premiere)
- Maurice Ravel Daphnis et Chloé
Stéphane Denève dives "down under" with Richard Rijnvos. And with Ravel's sparkling Daphnis et Chloé, he shows why he is so renowned for his interpretation of French music.
Famous French ballets
French conductor Stéphane Denève has already shown in previous Matinees that he can work magic with French scores. In addition to his love of contemporary music, this is the main reason why he has become a regular guest conductor of the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra starting this season. Denève immediately puts a first exclamation point behind the collaboration with two superb French ballets - Roussel's flaming Bacchus et Ariane and Ravel's complete Daphnis et Chloé. The opportunity for the orchestra to excel in refinement and splashes of color.
Red earth and Aborigines
The regular guest conductor further solidifies his relationship with the orchestra with new notes from Dutch soil. If there is one Dutch composer who can rival the colorfulness and rhythmic finesse of French scores, it is Richard Rijnvos. In the spring of 2022, he impressed with his breathtaking Amérique du Sud. Now Denève takes on the premiere of the latest movement from the Grand Atlas cycle with Australia. The sound of red earth and Aborigines translated into the world of Rijnvos.
