French melodies

THU 25.11.2021 at 19.00 VAASA CITY HALL

Vaasa City Orchestra
con. Chloé Dufresne
sol. Niamh McKenna, flute

Albert Roussel: Festin de l’araignée

André Jolivet: Flute concerto

Camille Saint-Saens: Symphony A

The young French conductor Chloé Dufresne was seen at the Tokyo Olympics closing ceremony directing the Orchestre National de France, and she already has achieved significant success. The concert led by Dufresne is a feast of French music: Albert Roussel’s ballet pantomime has a whole bunch of different insects and a spider having a party, so let the arachnophobes cover their ears! As a soloist of André Jolivet’s expressive flute concerto, Helsinki City Orchestra solo flautist Niamh McKenna closes the concert with Camille Saint-Saëns’ early symphony in brilliant A major.
