Ravel’s composition pays graceful homage to François Couperin and the other composers of eighteenth-century France. The CSO will also perform two additional movements from the original piano suite orchestrated by Jean-Marie. Ottorino Respighi’s sparkling suite portrays the delightful paintings of Italian master Sandro Botticelli. You will also enjoy Peter Lieberson’s gorgeous musical love letters derived from the sonnets of Nobel prize-winning Chilean poet Pablo Neruda.
