Why You'll Love This Concert
We’re used to seeing Maestro Wilson on the conductor’s podium. But for this concert, he joins pianist François Dumont, one of his foremost musical partners, in a special performance conceived as a gift to our Redlands audience. The program will feature works from their latest album and promises to be a musical masterpiece not soon forgotten.

Thoughtful & Inspiring
In the second act of his career, Ransom Wilson hasn’t discarded his flute for the conductor’s baton. Rather, he wields both with the same thoughtful and inspiring artistry.
It’s with this devotion to his craft that he joined forces with long-time musical partner, pianist François Dumont to produce their recently released album, In the Age of Debussy.
BBC Music Magazine described the collection’s nearly “live” feel, saying:
The phrasing is thoughtful in all these arrangements of early 20th-century French works. Odd slips in timing and precision give it a live performance feel — something we’re all craving anyway.
In a rare opportunity, Wilson and Dumont share their collaboration in person. This exclusive evening recital in Redlands will feature music by:
- Claude Debussy
- Gabriel Fauré
- Lili Boulanger
- Maurice Ravel
- Francis Poulenc
- Jean Rivier
- André Jolivet

The performance of Mozart's 40th was amazing. How Maestro Wilson conceived and brought forth the intensity, tension, and considerable emotion moved me deeply. The orchestra's discipline and preciseness were astonishing. When you've got only two horns, two oboes, two bassoons, and two clarinets, there's no room to fudge the pitch in the opening note of a phrase. I loved the way the horns and basses supported and colored the melodies.
As you can tell, I'm not a musician, but I am a huge Mozart fan. I'm also a huge fan of the Redlands Symphony and count myself fortunate to be able to attend a local concert of such glorious music.
