Temptation Of The Saintly Pot
18 May 2019

A troupe of zany kitchen utensils narrate a canteen cantilena in Martinů’s jazz ballet, La revue de cuisine, written during his time in Paris. Enjoy a delectable evening featuring the SSO woodwinds in this completely French-inspired programme. Relish the pleasant wit of Jean Françaix’s Dixtuor, and enjoy the sparkling inspiration of Madame Louise Farrenc, whose music was praised by Joseph Joachim and Schumann.
