All the works in this programme date from the first decade of the 20th century, including Florent Schmitt’s symphonic poem “La Tragédie de Salomé”. The similarity to Igor Stravinsky’s “Le Sacre du Printemps”, which premiered just two weeks earlier in 1913 at the Champs-Élysées theatre in Paris, is unmistakable. Stravinsky was certainly impressed by the work as he told Florent Schmitt in a letter dated 23 February 1912: “God, how fine it is! It is one of the greatest masterpieces of modern music”.
“Seven Early Songs“ for soprano and orchestra
“Dance of the Seven Veils” and final aria from the opera “Salome”
