A French Celebration - Iceland Symphony
Iceland Symphony Orchestra's Chief Conductor Yan Pascal Tortelier invites you to a symphonic celebration featuring light, accessible works from his native France. The programme includes several popular selections from works by Offenbach, including the overture to La Vie Parisienne and the famous Can-Can from Orpheus in the Underworld. Poulenc's Concerto for Two Pianos, written in 1932, is a true masterwork inspired by the full stylistic spectrum from Mozart to jazz. Dutch brothers Lucas and Arthur Jussen drew well-deserved acclaim for their performance in Harpa a few years ago.
