Daniel Barenboim conducts Fauré and Franck

At the end of the 19th century, people were greatly moved by the tragic story of Pelléas and Mélisande. Maurice Maeterlinck’s symbolist drama about secret love and fatal jealousy inspired Gabriel Fauré to write incidental music that brings the mood of the material to life. As the main work of the evening, Daniel Barenboim conducts César Franck’s Symphony in D minor – music that blends Beethovenian spirit with French elegance.
