“All pieces in this program feature the orchestra in a fantastic way” says Maestro Lang-Lessing, “Boléro is one of the most exhilarating pieces of music written, which explains why it is so popular, the whole program is about sensuality, seduction and temptation. And our very attempts to avoid these temptations and trying to get away from them… but we are human, we always fail – all of these pieces of music describe that.”
