Event description

Description

Mark Vines horn

Rebecca Miller conductor

PROGRAMME TO INCLUDE:

Debussy Prélude à l’Apres-midi d’un Faune

Strauss Horn Concerto No. 1, Op. 11

Stravinsky Firebird Suite (1919 version)

Although The Firebird was the work that elevated Stravinsky to international renown, he was offered the commission to compose the ballet for the newly formed Ballet Russes only after several prominent Russian composers had already rejected it. The ballet is based on the Russian legend of the Firebird, a powerful good spirit whose feathers supposedly convey beauty and protection upon the earth. Today, the ballet remains in repertoire across the world – and the concert suite, which you will hear during this event, has placed Stravinsky at the core of the orchestra’s catalogue.

This event will have a 20-minute interval. Wine and soft drinks are on sale during the interval.
