Boulanger D’un matin de printemps

Chausson Poème, Op. 25; Ravel Tzigane ▪ Lara St. John, violin

Debussy “Nuages” and “Fêtes” from Nocturnes

Ravel Daphnis et Chloé, Suite No. 2


The RSO opens the season with Lili Boulanger’s vibrant D’un matin de printemps (On a Spring Morning), depicting the start of a new day. The “high-powered soloist” (New York Times), Lara St. John performs Chausson’s darkly mournful Poème and Ravel’s rhapsodic Tzigane. Debussy’s Nocturnes have been celebrated for their ability to evoke imagery, light, and color. Ravel vividly interprets the ancient Greek myth of Daphnis and Chloé, originally scored for a ballet. As an orchestral work, the Suite No. 2 dazzles with its whirling intensity.
