Conducted by Fabien Gabel, the OSM welcomes to its stage pianists Katia and Marielle Labèque. Glass’ Double Piano Concerto, written for these two artists, is a work in which soloists and orchestra weave a tapestry of sound in constant flux. The melodic sensuality of Richard Strauss’ Dance of the Seven Veils and of Schmitt’s La tragédie de Salomé bring a touch of exoticism to this program.
