Dances of Galanta
Samson et Delilah: Danse Bacchanale
Vaughan Williams’ evocative London Symphony with its popular tune of the Westminister chimes opens this 10th anniversary concert of the MPYO, led by Kevin Field. Kodaly’s beguiling and colourful Dances of Galanta entertains us next. Commissioned by the MPYO in 2010, Chow’s Getaran expresses an excitement of living in the 21st century, and the concert festivities end with the savage and wild Danse Bacchanale from Saint-Saëns’ grand opera Samson et Delilah.
