BSO principal cellist Blaise Déjardin makes his BSO debut as concerto soloist in Camille Saint-Saëns' richly expressive Cello Concerto No. 1, considered one of the great concertos for the instrument. Bartók's Concerto for Orchestra is likely the most famous of the many works given their world premieres by the BSO. A remarkable blend of drama, humor, and folk-music pungency, the Concerto for Orchestra was commissioned by BSO conductor Serge Koussevitzky, who gave the premiere in December 1944, only a few months before the composer's death. Completing the program is the Suite No. 2 from the work Ravel considered his best, the 1912 ballet Daphnis et Chloé. The Suite No. 2 is the ballet's Part III, which incorporates a sunrise, a sensual flute solo, and the raucous danse générale.
