Athens State Orchestra: The Classical Magic


CONCERTS BY THE ATHENS STATE ORCHESTRA

 
If we accept that the term ‘classical’ in music is associated with clarity of form, depth of meaning, and economy of expressive means, then we could say that all three works of this concert are supreme examples of classical beauty though they belong to different ages. Top bassoonist Alexandros Economou will be tonight’s soloist.

- Joseph Haydn: Symphony No. 86 in D major, Hob. I/86
- Jean Françaix: Concerto for Bassoon and 11 String Instruments
- César Franck: Symphony in D minor
