    Les Siècles

    Les Siècles are at home with Saint-Saëns and Ravel, in close partnership with Sol Gabetta, who is also a regular performer of this repertoire.

    Saint-Saëns  Danse macabre op. 40, Cello Concerto No. 1 
    Ravel  Daphnis & Chloé, complete ballet 

    When Les Siècles place the score for Daphnis et Chloé on their music stands, Ravel fans know they are in for a treat. We recall the recording they made ten years ago on period instruments which made a profound impression and earned them a number of awards. This work, commissioned from Ravel by Sergei Diaghilev for the Ballets russes company, which is the composer’s longest and is considered to be among his finest orchestral works, remains enduringly popular. By way of contrast, however, the concert will open with Saint-Saëns’ famous Danse macabre, one of his four symphonic poems. And who better than Sol Gabetta to perform the Saint-Saëns’ Cello Concerto No.1? She is particularly comfortable with this repertoire as she began her recording career with this concerto, and re-recorded it recently – with Les Siècles, no less.
