Ravel’s most famous work, the hypnotic Bolero, begins this special
concert. Gloria, scored for soprano, large orchestra and chorus, is one of Poulenc’s most celebrated works. Rimsky-Korsakov’s famous Scheherazade, based on the tales of The Arabian Nights, is a symphonic suite full of dazzling orchestration and splendid violin solos.
