TEACHERS, MENTORS, AND FRIENDS OF THE BOULANGER SISTERS
AUGUST 8, 2021
Sunday at 5 PM
Presented by the Bard Music Festival
Program Five features both Widor’s Third Symphony for Organ and Orchestra (a true orchestral work, unlike the solo pieces he designated “Organ Symphonies”) and Dukas’s masterwork, the consummately orchestrated Symphony in C. These share the program with Francis Poulenc’s Concerto for Organ, Timpani and Strings, which premiered under Boulanger’s direction, and Lili Boulanger’s own orchestrations of her D’un matin de printemps and of eight songs from her innovative cycle Clairières dans le ciel.
This program includes a special reception at intermission, with a tasting of French wines themed to this concert, provided by Hudson Wine Merchants.
