Houston Symphony presents Ravel’s Bolero
Experience the magic and mischief of Dukas’ The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, inspired by Goethe’s classic poem and famously featured in Disney’s original Fantasia. Then, Caroline Goulding plays Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1 with “the poise and sheer veracity of technique of a veteran soloist.” Also, delight in Poulenc’s charming Model Animals Suite, taken from his ballet based on the tales of La Fontaine. Finally, witness Ravel’s genius at work in his ever-popular Boléro, his radical musical experiment with the power of orchestration.
