The DSO’s French Festival opens with a program dedicated to the music of Maurice Ravel. Influenced by jazz, traditional French composers along with his contemporaries, and greats from Mozart to Chopin, Ravel was a master orchestrator. He meticulously crafted color and movement in his music, which often seems to float out of a storybook, such as the tale of Daphnis seeking help from the god Pan to rescue his beloved Chloe from the hands of pirates.
