Swiss conductor Charles Dutoit leads this colorful Francophile program that begins with Strauss's charming quasi-ersatz 17th-century music to accompany a new version of Molière's play . Joining Dutoit and the orchestra is French cellist Gautier Capuçon in his BSO debut, performing Henri Dutilleux's . The great French composer Dutilleux (b.1916), completed this shimmering concerto-like work in 1970 for the great Mstislav Rostropovich. Closing the program is Debussy's symphony-like , three musical pictures of the sea.
The Thursday concert wasn't part of my subscriptions, so I haven't heard it yet. I assume it's available for listening over Classical New England as usual. (See links from past weeks.)
