Stravinsky: Suite from The Firebird
Music Director Andrei Feher opens the season with one of music’s great showpieces of orchestration and the remarkable tour-de-force that is Stravinsky’s Firebird. Named a BBC New Generation Artist, the exciting young cellist Andrei Ioniță takes on the formidable challenge that is Prokofiev’s Sinfonia Concertante, which is one of Andrei’s favourite pieces and once considered unplayable. Two folky and fairy tale-like pieces by Russian composer Liadov round out the program.
