Conductor Daniele Gatti, praised by The New York Times for eliciting "radiant, incisive playing," brings the Orchestre National de France back to Boston Symphony Hall, accompanied by pianist Alexandre Tharaud. Tharaud, who's been referred to as the "French Glenn Gould," is famed for his personal flair in performing the great works of the keyboard repertoire, along with his innovative approach to contemporary material. The Virgin Records artist is set to tackle Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 23 at this concert. The program kicks off, fittingly enough, with a work by the French composer Debussy and builds to a finale with Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5.
Debussy: Prélude à l’après midi d’un faune
