Vancouver Academy of Music Symphony Orchestra: Carnival of the Animals
From the graceful reverie of a faun to the lumbering waltz of an elephant, the French flair for musical imagery pervades Debussy’s dream-like Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune and Saint-Saëns’ cavalcade of comical creatures, The Carnival of the Animals. Featuring Poulenc’s Concert champêtre for harpsichord and orchestra and VAM’s Mary Buckerfield White Choral program in works by Gabriel Fauré.
Kathleen Allan, conductor
Christopher Gaze, narrator
Christina Hutten, harpsichord
