NatPhil’s 2022-2023 Season gets off to a spectacular start with some of the best symphonic music by diverse and celebrated French composers. Experience Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges’, Symphony No. 1 in G Major, a piece that many say rivals the best of Mozart’s work, and Symphony No. 3, a neglected masterpiece by musical genius Louise Farrenc. Violinist Gil Shaham joins NatPhil for Camille Saint-Saëns’ Violin Concerto No. 3, bringing its melodic invention and impressionistic subtlety to life. Together, these three compositions make for a joyful and magical aural experience. Venez voir la magie!
Why We Love This Concert
Internationally acclaimed violinist Gil Shaham is gracing the NatPhil stage once again!
We all want a Paris vacation, but in October? Not doable. Thankfully Maestro Piotr, the NatPhil orchestra and Gil are bringing Paris to us!
Chevalier rose to fame as a young man due to being a champion fencer. It wasn’t until later in his life that he began composing, performing, and conducting publicly.
Farrenc battled for equal pay compared to her male counterparts at the Paris Conservatory where she taught piano for over 30 years. After the premier of her successful nonet, she was eventually granted this.
