City of Light in Cardiff climaxes with a programme of new French discoveries – world premieres of two works by Debussy, and the UK premiere of Jolivet’s beguiling song-cycle of love and longing. Introduced by Caroline Rae and Robert Orledge, these exciting explorations are juxtaposed with Debussy’s atmospheric Nocturnes and Ravel’s thrilling apotheosis of the dance, La Valse.
