Description Messiaen's St. Francis of Assisi, the final performance of the Brooklyn Philharmonic's 1999-2000 season. This season, Music Director Robert Spano has examined music inspired by key events or issues of the last century. We end tonight with Olivier Messiaen's affirmation of faith. It is with great pride that we present the United States premiere of tableaux 4 and 5, along with the final, glorious tableau from the opera.
A pre-concert presentation begins one hour before every Brooklyn Philharmonic performance in the Howard Gilman Studio on BAM's sixth floor.
