Atlanta favorite Jun Märkl leads an evening of stunning French music packed with velvety-rich harmonies and exquisite orchestral craftsmanship. Opening the performance is Berlioz' dramatic and brilliantly rousing Overture to Benvenuto Cellini followed by Henri Vieuxtemps' Violin Concerto No. 5 featuring Giora Schmidt in his Atlanta Symphony debut. The program closes with Ravel's Daphnis et Choloé, described by Beatles producer George Martin as "a swelling of sound that is just breathtaking" when placing the work at the top of his list of essentials on BBC's "Desert Island Discs."
