Philharmonia - Poems and Paintings

Boulanger - D'un soir triste 

Ravel - Le tombeau de Couperin 

Boulanger - D'un matin de printemps 

Mendelssohn - Symphony No. 4 , Italian 


Celebrate the evocative power of music in a programme alive with Impressionist brush strokes and vivid memories. 


"This is Italy! ...And I am loving it". 

Mendelssohn wrote home - and the excitement of his Italian Symphony shares his holiday thrills. Lili Boulanger's final works showcase her masterly control of musical painting: D'un soir triste is dark and passionate, while D' un matin de printemps is carried by fleet-footed woodwind to depict a spring morning overflowing with life.
