Dallas Chamber Symphony, led by Artistic Director and Conductor Richard McKay, will launch its eighth season with a dynamic concert, “Saint-Saëns Piano Concerto 2,” featuring works by three French composers.

Celebrating its centenary this year, Maurice Ravel’s (1875-1937) neo-baroque orchestral suite (1919), Le Tombeau de Couperin, will start the program. Renowned pianist, Christopher Goodpasture will then solo with orchestra on Camille Saint-Saëns’ (1835-1921) dramatic "Piano Concerto No. 2 in G Minor" (1868). Francis Poulenc’s innovative and lively "Sinfonietta" (1947) concludes the program.

Presented together, the works are demonstrative of the transformation of turn-of-the-20th century Parisian tastes from the conservativism of late-romantic Saint-Saëns, through the flexible, diplomatic and more modern Ravel, to the more free-spirited and avant-garde Poulenc.
