+ And Ravel's Suite No. 2: Daphnis et Chloe - his most impressive composition
Ok... now we're back 4 hours later - and it was a GREAT show! As expected, the two French impressionist compositions were the highlights. Can you imagine a symphony orchestra with 15 double bass players? And woodwind section - including a bass flute and piccolo - that were breath taking? It was a treasure and well worth the effort - and the chilly, damp weather - to hear these symphonies played to perfection. Next stop... Monday in Montreal!
