Haydn: Symphony No. 60 in C major, "Il Distrato" Takemitsu: Toward the Sea II for Alto Flute, Harp & Strings Ravel: Daphnis et Chloè (complete ballet)
The evening opens with Haydn’s buoyant Symphony No. 60, “Il Distrato.” This is followed by Toru Takemitsu’s dreamy soundscape Toward the Sea II, which is an apt prelude to Ravel’s dazzlingly lush symphonic palette of orchestral colors in the full ballet score of Daphnis et Chloé.
Pre-Concert Conversation: All Masterworks programs offer a pre-concert talk about the music and the composers in the concert hall beginning one hour prior to curtain.
