French and Spanish night with the dancing François Xavier at barbican ! 

exciting night of a diverse program of Wagner, lalo, debussey and Massenet at barbican with the very energetic and dancy conductor Francois Xavier and the London symphony orchestra – the flute, the timpani and the trumpets are perfect tonight – marking the 100 years after debussey’s death – I was lucky to hear the “first” orchestra work suite d’orchestre from debussey with diverse topics in the 4 movements – the second piece “ballet” took us to a dance to the exotic east – sounds a bit Arabian – I also loved the descending scales repeated played in the fourth movement cortege et bacchanale – the night started with wagner’s long overture for Tannhauser – a storm was brewing over the orchestra – in an upward spirit like ode to joy – with sentiment and thickness – like moving mountains – this was the second time I listen to lalo’s cello concerto as well – last time was from a Spanish night at the south bank with his espagnol violin piece – my favourite part was how the cello started the third movement – in a full and melodic manner – I loved how orchestra was supporting the cello like a background – but my favourite tonight was definitely Massenet ! 103 more words
