César Franck’s mission was to compose symphonic music that is balanced and structured while remaining fundamentally French, and Chloé Van Soeterstède’s talented baton does it justice. Dedicated to soloist in residence Emmanuel Pahud, Dalbavie’s Concerto pour flûte captivates the audience through its expertly woven soundscape. The concert opens with a work by Swedish pioneer Elfrida Andrée, giving the program a solemn tone.
