The music of Ravel is closely associated with the Orchestre National de Lyon – the sumptuous orchestral colors in Daphnis et Chloé as well as in Shéhérazade, inspired by 1001 Nights, with Renée Fleming as soloist. Ravel also composed incidental music for Antar, based on works by Rimsky-Korsakov, with Thomas Hampson in the role of narrator. The program also includes the American première of Celephaïs, a work by Guillaume Connesson, inspired by H. P. Lovecraft’s imaginary city.
