Isabelle Faust is applauded on stages the world over. Her pure and lyrical virtuoso playing is ideal for interpreting Britten’s bewitching Violin Concerto. For our opening concert, Alexandre Bloch invites us on a voyage to the end of the galaxy to discover Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and further-flung worlds through Gustav Holst’s The Planets. Composed at the start of the 20th century, each star in the score is associated with a human trait. From Mars, the warrior, to Neptune, the mystic, the work is a dazzling symphonic poem!
