Rafael Payare Conducts Daphnis and Chloé

Amphithéâtre Fernand-Lindsay
29 July 2022
20:00

To hear the music of Daphnis and Chloé is to be transported to a world of shimmering colours and suave exoticism, to the mysteries of a legendary Greece to which only Ravel held the key. It is also a journey through time, to the Paris of the beginning of the 20th century, that of the Ballets Russes and their irresistible effervescence. The brilliant pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet makes his Lanaudière debut in the Festival’s third concert with Rafael Payare and the OSM, offering his vision of Scriabin’s colossal “Prometheus,” a flamboyant interpretation of an ancient myth. First on the program: we will attend the Quebec premiere of Elysium by Samy Moussa, a work co-commissionned by the Vienna Philharmonic and the Festival.
