Florida Orchestra Presents: Saint-Saens Organ Symphony

Florida Orchestra Presents: Saint-Saens Organ Symphony

January 6, 2017 – 7:00PM

Michael Francis, conductor 
Augustin Hadelich, violin 

Shepherd: Magiya 
Lalo: Symphonie Espagnole 
Debussy/Matthews: The Sunken Cathedral 
Saint-Saëns: Symphony No. 3, Organ Symphony 

Michael Francis explores the cathedral inside and out, with French composer Saint-Saens Symphony No. 3, Organ Symphony, and Debussy/Matthews The Sunken Cathedral (TFO premiere). Interestingly, despite being called the Organ Symphony, it is not a symphony for organ. In fact, organ is used in only two of the four movements, though the dramatic ending is a showstopper. Also on the program is Grammy Award winner and returning violinist Augustin Hadelich on Lalo's Symphonie espagnole and Shepherd's Magiya (TFO premiere), influenced by the great tradition of the Russian overtures and a Russian sense of magic-or magiya.
