This will be the American premiere of De Tiempo y de Metal, a work composed for solely brass instruments by living French composer Martin Matalon. Brilliant pianist Jean-Philippe Collard takes on the concerto that even challenged Saint-Saëns himself, with technical bravura as dazzling as the compositional craftsmanship. Berlioz’s fanatically colorful Symphonie fantastique uses the concert hall’s acoustics to maximum effect as the crowning touch to this thrilling, energetic program from France.
