Alumnus Ludovic Morlot, Conductor Emeritus of the Seattle Symphony, makes his debut appearance with the Academy Symphony Orchestra for an all-French programme. Dutilleux’s Métaboles of 1965 moves away from traditional forms and presents musical ideas that undergo radical transformations in a series of metamorphoses, each highlighting a particular instrumental group.

Advanced Diploma students Katy Smith and Margarita Balanas perform the solo parts in Saint-Saēns’s La muse et le poète for violin, cello and orchestra. The concert closes with the second of Debussy’s ‘images’ for orchestra, infused with Spanish folk music.
