John Wilson and the Sinfonia of London explore the unique sound world of French orchestral music of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The program juxtaposes well-known favorites, such as Debussy’s Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune and Massenet’s ‘Méditation’ from Thaïs, with pieces far more rarely heard, for example Duruflé’s Trois Danses and Saint-Saëns’s Le Rouet d’Omphale.
