Stravinsky’s Firebird is an enchanting, dramatic fairy-tale that boasts some of classical music’s most vivid and glorious orchestral writing. Rachmaninoff’s First Piano Concerto highlights the composer’s trademarks — lingering melodies, rich textures and piano pyrotechnics. With exotic harmonies and bewitching tunes, Nielsen’s Aladdin Suite is an adventurous romp in a faraway land. The White Peacock is one of Griffes’ best-known Impressionist works. Join conductor Michael Stern and pianist Alon Goldstein as they transport audiences to a different world through their performance of these unique orchestral pieces.
