The Lost Chord: August 21 - French Connections

cyrano_balcony_scene.jpg

It’s an hour of original works by figures who employed their skills as orchestrators in the service of more celebrated French composers, including Henri Rabaud (orchestrator of Fauré’s Dolly Suite), André Caplet (orchestrator of Debussy’s Children’s Corner, Clair de lune, Le Martyre de saint Sébastien, and La Boite à joujoux), Henri Büsser (orchestrator of Debussy’s Petite Suite and Printemps) and Charles Koechlin (orchestrator of Fauré’s Pelléas et Mélisande and Debussy’s Khamma). These musical Cyranos emerge from the shadow of Roxane’s balcony, Sunday at 10 pm.
