Why See Ravel's Daphnis et Chloe and Dvorak?
Gautier Capucon Performs Dvorak's Cello Concerto
The New York Philharmonic welcome special guest conductor Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla and cello superstar Gautier Gapucon for a rousing program of Ravel, Sibelius and Dvorak this winter. A featured soloist of the ensemble's 2018/19 season, Capucon tops off a busy year, having undertaken numerous solo tours as well as featured performances with the likes of the London Symphony Orchestra, the Berlin Philharmoniker and the San Francisco Symphony amongst others.
The renowned cellist will start off the evening in Dvorak's emotionally-charged Cello Concerto, setting off its aural fireworks that would prove to be the composer's last ever solo concerto. The Finnish mythology of the first movement of Sibelius' Lemminkainen Suite follows, a sweeping epic that brings an air of brooding drama to the David Geffen Hall. The program closes with Ravel's intoxicating Daphnis et Chloe Suite No. 2, the largest and most ambitious work the composer ever wrote. Its introductory strings, harps and piccolo conjure a breaking dawn, before giving way to an impassioned lyrical them and stunning climax.
