Symphonic Tales: Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano
About the Event
Immerse yourself in the stunning architecture of Milan's breathtaking Auditorium Fondazione Cariplo for the ultimate concert set to awake your understanding of classical music.
Sheherazade, mythical heroine and narrator of The Thousand and One Nights, had fascinated many authors‐Nikolai Rimsky‐Korsakov ça va sans dire‐including Maurice Ravel, who had precisely fallen under the spell of the Orient. To the subject of Sheherazade, Ravel had dedicated no less than two works: an Ouverture de féerie, written in 1898 (but unpublished until 1975) and inspired by Russian music the second is a song cycle on texts by Léon Leclère dated 1903. Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique, an imaginative journey into the imagination of the French composer, closes the program.
