ROUSSEL Bacchus et Ariane, Suite No. 2


French conductor Alain Altinoglu, making his BSO debut, leads this all- French program and is joined by his countryman, the violinist Renaud Capuçon, for Édouard Lalo’s Symphonie espagnole, written for the great Spanish virtuoso Sarasate in 1874 and a brilliant concerto in all but name. Berlioz’s Le Corsaire Overture, by turns romantic and exuberant, opens the program. Albert Roussel’s Suite No. 2 from his 1930 ballet Bacchus et Ariane was strongly championed with the BSO by Charles Munch. It was also Munch who introduced Henri Dutilleux’s music to the orchestra and called for the commission of his atmospheric Symphony No. 2, Le Double, to commemorate the BSO’s 75th anniversary.
