Soprano Anna Patalong and conductor Sonia Ben Santamaria present a performance of Canteloube’s idyllic Chants d’Auvergne in an arrangement for wind quintet and harp.
This collection of folksongs from the Auvergne region was arranged for soprano voice and orchestra between 1923 and 1930 and is sung in the ancient local language, Occitan. Many will be familiar with the famous ‘Baïlèro’ as well as ‘Obal din lou Limouzi’ that have been used in numerous film scores.
Part of Opera Holland Park’s 2021 Season in their new 400-seat performance space. Built with sustainable materials and located in the heart of one of London’s most beautiful parks, the newly designed auditorium offers audiences an immediate connection to the emotional drama of opera, while also being customised for safe social distancing, and providing greater accessibility.
