Faure Pavane Saint-Saens Danse macabre Ravel Piano Concerto in G Faure Requiem City of London Choir London Mozart Players Vitaly Pisarenko piano* Cecilia Osmond soprano Thomas Humphreys baritone Hilary Davan Wetton conductor Details Magical French music for a midsummer's evening. Saint-Saens' irrepressible Danse macabre depicts Death himself playing his violin for the dance of the skeletons, setting a spirited tone for Ravel's colourful Piano Concerto in G. Infused with 1920s jazz syncopations, Ravel's masterpiece is by turns witty and tender, and always lyrical. These lively pieces are juxtaposed with Elysian reverie in Faure's pastoral miniature, Pavane, and his ethereal Requiem. First performed shortly after the death of the composer's mother, the Faure Requiem is justly one of the most consoling and cherished pieces in choral repertoire.
