Nathan Aspinall, Associate Conductor
|BRAHMS||Variations on a Theme of Joseph Haydn|
|RAVEL||Pavane for a Dead Princess|
|BIZET||Symphony No. 1|
Written when he was only 17 – long before his famous Carmen – Bizet’s First Symphony contains hallmarks of Mozart and Gounod. The work is filled with the young prodigy’s youthful exuberance, cheerful marches and fresh lyricism.
