Poulenc's Aubade: A Still-Unique Choreographic Concerto
In 1929, an unusual work by a versatile 20th-century French composer premiered at the home of his wealthy patrons. As WRTI’s Susan Lewis reports, this piece, still unique in the classical repertoire, is part piano concerto and part ballet, in a chamber music setting.
Listen to The Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert on WRTI, Sunday, April 13 at 1 pm to hear conductor Stephane Deneve lead the Philadelphians in works by Stravinsky and Prokofiev.
