Imagine a gothic cathedral looming out of the twilight. Picture an impressionist landscape beneath pastel skies. And now think of Belle-Époque Paris in all its ritzy, raucous colour. That’s a very rough idea of what it’s like to hear César Franck’s extraordinary Symphony in D minor – for decades, one of the world’s most popular classics. Our Paris-born conductor Fabien Gabel is bringing it back tonight: the crowning glory of a Gallic-flavoured concert that begins with a sumptuous overture by the composer of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and stars the phenomenal Jussen brothers in Poulenc’s unashamedly entertaining Double Concerto. Naughty – but nice.
