About this Performance

Kevin John Edusei leads music from the ballet that turned Stravinsky into an international superstar. The Firebird Suite draws on Russian folk tunes and tales, unlocking an enchanted world of ogres, princesses, and, of course, a mesmerizing bird with flaming wings. Lush and intoxicating melodies pour out from the opening measures before the orchestra takes off at full speed on a truly spellbinding flight. The night opens with another ballet suite, this time by Armenian composer Aram Khachaturian. Edusei guides the richly orchestrated Spartacus—famous for its stirring Adagio—before LA Phil Principal Concertmaster Martin Chalifour reels listeners into the pastoral landscapes of Khachaturian’s homeland with the composer’s folk-inspired Violin Concerto.
