Poulenc - Sinfonietta
Saint Saens: Cello Concerto No. 1
Gounod: Symphony No. 1

Werner Andreas Albert - Conductor
Andreas Brantelid - Cello Soloist

Three French composers bring Gallic flair to the final concert of this series. Poulenc's Sinfonietta, his only symphonic work, opens the concert on a light, lyrical note.

Many composers, including Shostakovich and Rachmaninov considered Saint Saens' Cello Concerto No. 1 to be the greatest of all cello concertos. The incredibly demanding solo part will be performed by virtuoso Scandinavian cellist Andreas Brantelid.

Gounod's first symphony, although little known, will provide a compelling and charming conclusion to the concert.
