CARTE BLANCHE À RENAUD CAPUÇON

MAHLER, STRAUSS

Sunday 28 april - 17h00

Grand Théâtre de Provence

This year's carte blanche sees Renaud Capuçon bring together the Easter Festival's big family; less a gathering of international artists, more an evening of music with friends, and we are lucky enough to be there.


Eleven soloists will play from the Austrian repertoire and for the most part, Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 4.  The most traditional of the romantic composer's nine opuses was not well received at first but remains immensely popular today. It has been arranged for a chamber orchestra, and loses none of its vitality and amusing verve.
