Soprano Renee Fleming’s program for March 13, 2012 has finally been announced. The conductor is Ms. Fleming’s own, Sebastian Lang-Lessing.
I’m most excited about two of the selections: Ravel’s Shéhérazade, and Korngold’s Marietta’s Lied from Die Tote Stadt, two of the most beautiful pieces ever written for voice and orchestra.
|Hector Berlioz||Roman Carnival Overture|
|Maurice Ravel||• Shéhérazade|
|II. The Enchanted Flute|
|III. The Indifferent One|
|Charles Gounod||Ballet Music from Faust (excerpts)|
|Charles Gounod||• Ah! je ris de me voir si belle (Jewel Song)|
|Ricky Ian Gordon||• Night Flight to San Francisco|
|Leonard Bernstein||Overture to Candide|
|Matthew Bellamy, Dominic Howard,Christopher Wolstenholme||• Endlessly|
|Leonard Cohen||• Hallelujah|
|Benjamin Gibbard||• Soul Meets Body|
|Erich Wolfgang Korngold||Overture to Captain Blood|
|Franz Lehar||• Vilja-Lied from The Merry Widow|
|Erich Wolfgang Korngold||• Marietta’s Lied from Die Tote Stadt|
NOTE: Interestingly, I picked up this information (the first clue, at least) from Oregonlive.com. Then, intrigued, I went to the Oregon Symphony’s web site to see if the complete program was available, and voila!
