About This Performance
One hundred years ago, Serge Diaghilev and his Ballets Russes shocked Paris – and ultimately the world – with The Rite of Spring. It was the crab-footed Primitivist choreography of Vaslav Nijinsky that caused most of the initial outcry, but it was the music by Igor Stravinsky – radically stressed in meter and rhythm, rooted in Russian folk music, and brilliantly scored – that worked the most thorough revolution.
A masterpiece of orchestral color and energy led by a master of those elements.
A fiery and expressive young virtuoso tackles the temperaments of Tchaikovsky’s beloved Concerto.
