Basingstoke Symphony Orchestra is back with: La Belle France Concert

A tribute to some of the greatest French composers, this concert also has something of a Spanish flavour, since Massenet and Bizet, skilfully use colourful orchestration and striking dance rhythms to suggest the sounds of Spain. Fauré's sublime Pavane is a perennial favourite, as is Massenet's lovely Meditation from Thais which will be performed by the orchestra's leader, Sue Bint. Debussy's dreamy tone poem L'Après Midi d'un Faune with its haunting, sinuous opening flute solo simply transports the listener into a magical, mythical world of naiads and nymphs. Although Belgian by birth, Franck worked in Paris during his adult life. His D minor Symphony is one of his later and most mature compositions.
