KC Symphony: Enchanting and Exotic

Friday January 25, 2019 • 8 p.m. • Kauffman Center • TBA

8 p.m.

Stravinsky’s Firebird is an enchanting, dramatic fairytale 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. It will take place at the Kauffman Center from Jan. 25 through Jan. 27. The first two performances will be at 8 p.m., and Sunday’s will be at 2 p.m. Tickets are not on sale yet.
