Two symphonic and resplendent works for two orchestras.

Richard STRAUSS (1864-1949)Wiener Philharmoniker Fanfare, TrV 248

For double brass choir & timpani: 6 trumpets, 8 horns, 6 trombones, 2 tubas & 2 timpanists

Benjamin BRITTEN (1913-1976)The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra, Opus 34  « Variations & Fugue on a Theme by Purcell” for symphony orchestra & reciting

Fabien CALI (born in 1983)Cueillir le Jour: Cycle of 12 songs on Poems by Ronsard  ACVL control for EO41 for voice & double orchestra | “State order 2021”

It is difficult to offer a more spontaneously appealing program than this one, which contains the spectacular and playful din of a classical music hit and the equally spectacular novelty of a commission for two orchestras.The Young Person’s guide to the orchestra was composed by Benjamin Britten, then aged 33, for an educational film intended to present a symphony orchestra. Britten deploys a theme by Henry Purcell in as many variations as there are instruments in the group: violin, harp or percussion, everyone plays it.

Pick the day is the result of an order placed by EO41 with Fabien Cali, a self-taught rock and jazz guitarist before being the winner of seven prizes at the Paris Conservatory and a rising star of contemporary music. He is here requested for a work for two orchestras, one professional, the other student, which will therefore be the EO41 and an ensemble of student musicians from Loir-et-Cher. Pedagogy, repertoire work and pure novelty, the music-loving people ask for nothing more.
