The French Connection: Brevard Symphony Orchestra

Cicely Parnas
Brevard Symphony Orchestra
Cicely Parnas

With The French Connection we feature a program of music filled with elegance and grace by four masterful French composers. Gabriel Faure’s sweetly somber Pavane opens the program, followed by one of the most famous works for cello and orchestra – the First Cello Concerto by Camille Saint-Saens. Rising star Cicely Parnas makes her BSO debut with this tuneful showpiece. After intermission, two suites originally composed for piano are heard in their orchestral versions – Claude Debussy’s charming Petite Suite is a setting of four miniature tone pictures. Maurice Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin salutes not just the great French Baroque master Francois Couperin – but also serves as a musical tribute to friends and colleagues of Ravel’s who were lost during World War I.
