The MET Orchestra Chamber Ensemble

Monday, January 23, 2023 7:30 PM Weill Recital Hall
Joshua Hopkins by Simon Pauly
The MET Orchestra Chamber Ensemble returns with an all-French program. The concert begins with Poulenc’s Le bal masqué, a lively work that utilizes the baritone of Joshua Hopkins, who recently premiered the role of Orpheus in Matthew Aucoin’s Eurydice. Boulanger’s Trois Pièces quickly demonstrate the gifts of an overlooked composer best known for teaching such artists as Copland, Bernstein, Piazzolla, and Daniel Barenboim. Caplet’s Conte fantastique is a dramatic telling of Poe’s Masque of the Red Death, Debussy’s Danse sacrée et danse profane is a rousing staple of the harp repertoire, and Saint-Saëns’s Tarantelle closes the program on a lively note that highlights flute, clarinet, and piano.
