Conductor Fabien Gabel with Lucas & Arthur Jussen on piano perform Ravel, Poulenc, Francis, Strauss and Schmitt.

Richard Strauss found the ideal opera material in this Bible story. Salome demands the head of John the Baptist from her stepfather King Herod in return for one of her famous dances. The Dresden premiere of his 'Salome', based on a drama written in French by the Irish poet Oscar Wilde, turned into a scandal in 1905.

Conductor Fabien Gabel contrasts the great Salome scores with two lighter works from France. Maurice Ravel wanted to honor Franz Schubert with his 'Valses nobles et sentimentales', while Francis Poulens wanted to honor Mozart.

Works performed:

Maurice Ravel
Valses nobles et sentimentales

Concerto for two pianos and orchestra in D minor

Richard Strauss
Salome: Dance of the seven scleiers

Florent Schmitt
La tragédie de Salomé, Symphonic Suite
