ABOUT THIS CONCERT
Filled with glittering orchestral colors and vibrant Russian folk flavor, Stravinsky’s revelatory score for The Firebird took him from an unknown young composer to an overnight star. Experience this much-loved masterpiece, from the fiery “Infernal Dance” to the blazingly majestic finale. Our season-long Bernstein celebration continues with a spellbinding portrait of four young people’s search for faith in a war-torn world, rendered with flair by the extraordinary Jean-Yves Thibaudet.
This program features guest concertmaster Yosuke Kawasaki.
