A Paris Happening
Tea & Symphony with the Fellows

Enjoy the joie de vivre of a Paris morning as Debussy, Ibert and Milhaud dazzle and delight.

Jacques Ibert’s breezy esprit animates his Divertissement, bright, bustling music originally composed for a farce about a donkey, a straw hat and a wedding.

Ibert’s dapper Concertino for alto saxophone is a cornerstone of repertoire for this most Parisian of instruments, painted in splashy Mediterranean colours. It’s a sparkling display-piece for the skills of the dynamic, award-winning Nick Russoniello and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra’s talented Fellows.

The sax reappears in Milhaud’s sensual jazz-inflected ballet music – a kind of Rite of Spring by way of Manhattan. Speaking of sexy, Debussy’s music for a faun’s afternoon is classical music at its most alluringly M-rated. Its sighing flute solo is the seductive sound of a musical revolution: the beginning of modern music.
