This concert has a very French feel with Dukas’ Sorcerer’s Apprentice (unforgettably animated in Disney’s Fantasia), the gossamer-like Pavane Pour Une Enfante Defunte by Ravel and Alison Roddy the vocalist in the delightful and popular Songs of the Auvergne by Canteloube. The concert ends with Rachmaninov’s spectacular Symphonic Dances, showing off the orchestra to dazzling effect.
