Event information

Join more than 200 Guildhall School musicians for their first concert of the academic year and experience music at its most evocative in works by Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel and Lili Boulanger.

In this all-French programme the Guildhall Symphony Orchestra and Chorus explore the familiar magic of Debussy’s Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune, the daring drama of Boulanger’s Psalm 130Du fond de l'abîme and Ravel’s masterful love story Daphnis et Chloé.

The ensembles will be under the baton of conductor Marius Stravinsky*, and joined by mezzo-soprano Alexandra Achillea Pouta and tenor Steven van der Linden.

*Due to illness, Lionel Bringuier is no longer able to conduct this Guildhall Symphony Orchestra & Chorus performance at Barbican Hall. We are grateful to Marius Stravinsky for stepping in at short notice to conduct the concert.
