History is not always known for its preservation of women’s contributions to their fields, and music is no exception. Led by Co-Artistic Director Matthew Aubin and Artistic Director Laureate Miguel Campos Neto, this all-French program sees the US premiere of Augusta Holmès’s Roland Furieux, a fantastical work from 1867 based on Ludovico Ariosto’s epic poem Orlando Furioso that only received its first performance in 2019. Saturday evening also features two works originally written for saxophone and orchestra by women whose music is still largely under recognized today: Paule Maurice’s programmatic Tableaux de Provence, featuring Rob Wilkerson, and Fernande Decruck’s Sonata in C# for viola and orchestra, performed by Mitsuru Kubo. Camille Saint-Saens’s Piano Concerto No. 2 with pianist Candace Chien rounds out the weekend. *** PROGRAM: Pierre Thilloy: Liberty (World Premiere)
