Get your musical passport stamped at Charles de Gaulle Airport. French composers Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel were the original fin de siècle symphonic innovators and they showed the world what it meant to truly "paint with sound." It is no wonder they became the most recognizable Parisian orchestral icons during the early 20th century. With this program featuring some of their most colorful creations, you can travel with your ears to that great city of long ago and experience the time and place that inspired Woody Allen's 2011 film Midnight in Paris.
