Overview

Ravel Le tombeau de Couperin 

Couperin  Suite from L’Apothéose de Lully

R Strauss  Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme Suite

Kirill Karabits  Conductor

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 Moliere’s famous comedy.
