Westminster Symphonic Choir 

Ravel Le Tombeau de Couperin
Prokofiev Violin Concerto No. 1
Ravel Daphnis and Chloé (complete ballet) 

Yannick brings two masterworks by Ravel to this program. Each movement of his intimate Le Tombeau de Couperin is dedicated to a friend who died in the First World War, but as a whole, the composition is a tribute to the splendors of French music, which may be best embodied in Ravel’s ballet Daphnis and Chloé, a work Yannick calls “very dear to my heart.” He leads the complete version of this sparkling and sensual orchestral showpiece, bringing to vivid life the mythological story of the goatherd Daphnis and the shepherdess Chloé. It’s a hedonistic tale, with a musical bacchanal in the garden of Pan. Curtis grad and rising star violinist Benjamin Beilman made his Philadelphia Orchestra debut in 2015, performing with “polish and power” (The Philadelphia Inquirer). He returns with Prokofiev’s ethereal Violin Concerto No. 1.
