Overview

Ravel Le tombeau de Couperin

Couperin Suite from L’Apothéose de Lully

R Strauss Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme Suite

Kirill Karabits Conductor

An evening of homage to composing predecessors. Perhaps one of Ravel’s most personal creations Le Tombeau de Couperin is a memorial to the fallen in the First World War. Bursting with colour and inventiveness, he reimagines the clarity and rhythmic liveliness of its Baroque forebears. Couperin in turn depicts the elder composer’s elevation to Mount Parnassus whilst the elegant, witty and tender music of Lully himself, enlivened by Strauss’ colourful orchestration and counter-melodies, is central to his bold adaptation of Molière’s famous comedy.
