Mahler Chamber Orchestra musicians gather in St. Denis to participate once again at Festival de Saint-Denis. A chamber music programme of Ravel, Debussy and Brahms accords listeners an artful blending of MCO wind and string timbres.
The festival is celebrating its 50th anniversary over a three-year period from 2017 to 2019. Last year the Mahler Chamber Orchestra also participated in the celebrations by presenting two orchestra concerts and additional chamber music performances.
An interesting note to this concert venue: the Maisons d'éducation de la Légion d'honneur was established by Napoleon to facilitate the education of young women whose father, grandfather or great-grandfather had been awarded the Légion d'honneur.
