RAVEL Valses nobles et sentimentales

BERLIOZ Les nuits d’été

SAINT-SAËNS Symphony No.3, 'Organ'

Praised by The New York Times for her ‘creamy singing’, mezzo-soprano Susan Graham performs Les nuits d’été by Berlioz: exquisite orchestral songs which make perfect listening for a summer evening. The programme opens with Ravel’s witty Valses nobles et sentimentales, which began life as a piano suite before being transformed by Ravel's unique palette of orchestral colours. Saint-Saëns' ‘Organ’ Symphony is perhaps his most majestic achievement, with an expansive structure, virtuosic display and the grand sound of the organ adding richness to the timbre.
