Christian Thielemann conducts a concert “à la française”

This French programme with conductor Christian Thielemann presents itself as delicate and passionate. Ernest Chausson’s sumptuous song cycle Poème de l’amour et de la mer with mezzo-soprano Sophie Koch is followed by Debussy’s graceful dances for harp and strings. The climax is the soft, even charming Requiem by Gabriel Fauré, which culminates in a touchingly optimistic vision of the hereafter.
