French conductor Michel Plasson visited Montreal last week and gave some fine performances with the OSM. There was nothing new in his programming but lots of individuality nonetheless. Who else programmes the Gounod symphonies these days? And how many conductors give encores? Plasson did both and delighted his audiences.
In our video Plasson leads the Orchestre de Paris in the Hungarian March from Berlioz' Damnation of Faust. The performance was given in Versailles in 2009.
