François-Xavier Roth leads Les Siècles into an evening of music by two of the most famous French composers of the early 20th century with the added bonus of live animation for part of the show.

With founder and principal conductor François-Xavier Roth, Les Siècles is known for combining period instruments and an imaginative approach. For Ravel’s Piano Concerto, the group is joined by acclaimed  soloist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet.

Their performance of the Ma mère l’oye (Mother Goose) is accompanied by Grégoire Pont’s hand-drawn illustrations, many created on the spot.

His previous collaborations with the orchestra include Presto! for France Television, which explored classical music through animation and was seen by over three million viewers.
