Why See Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra - The New Year Begins: The Firebird!?
Kickstart your 2018
Junjo Mena returns to the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra for this bright program ushering in the new year. Among pieces from Ravel, Ibert and of course Stravinsky's magnificent Firebird, the company will also interpret Debussy's Printemps for the first time in their illustrious history.
Both held as masters of the early 20th Century, it seems right that Ravel and Stravinsky's differing approaches are juxtaposed. From the modernist elegance and Viennese inspired grandeur of Ravel's Valses Nobles et Sentimentales to the dramatic peaks and magical landscapes of the Firebird, both display sheer talent that sets them high above their contemporaries.
IBERT: Flute Concerto
RAVEL: Valses Nobles et Sentimentales
STRAVINSKY: Suite from The Firebird (1919)
Opening night: 12 January 2018
