Staying in Paris this week with another concert by Orchestre National de France, this time conducted by Daniele Gatti and featuring Pianist David Fray in the Schoenberg Piano Concerto (1942). Starting off with Wagner's Siegfried Idyll and continuing with Debussy's Nocturne's after the Schoenberg and finishing up with Wagner again, this time the Good Friday Spell from Parsifal. All together a pretty good and well-received concert with a Bach encore from Fray.
The concert is broken up on to two players. The top player features the Wagner and Schoenberg and the bottom player features the Debussy and Wagner Parsifal.
