The music

Thought you’d heard everything there was to know about the legendary Bolero? Have you ever really noticed its grand saxophone solos? They are, without doubt, one of the magical elements of Ravel’s orchestral brilliance! As a bonus treat, the fast-paced flurry between Valentine Michaud and Jonathan Nott in John Williams’ Escapades will unveil the wild possibilities of the orchestra’s latest addition.
