Debussy & Brahms feat. Giancarlo Guerrero, Jean Yves Thibaudet & Women of the Nashville Symphony Chorus
Debussy’s captivating Nocturnes is the musical equivalent of an impressionist painting, with orchestral colors conveying the sensation of twilight as clouds pass overhead. The women of the Nashville Symphony Chorus will lend their voices to conjure visions of mermaids swimming in the sea. Featuring pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Scottish composer James MacMillan’s The Mysteries of Light revives the ancient practice of using Catholic liturgy as inspiration, with the resulting music serving as a springboard for meditation and reflection. The evening closes in a blaze of brilliance with Brahms’ Fourth Symphony, which sums up his genius with music of pathos and profound intensity.
