The Rite of Spring

Description

GEMMA NEW conducts ZLATOMIR FUNG cello BORODIN Polovtsian Dances KATHERINE BALCH Cello Concerto | World Premiere STRAVINSKY The Rite of Spring "There is music wherever there is rhythm, as there is life wherever there beats a pulse," wrote Stravinsky in one of his sketchbooks for The Rite of Spring. This quote sums up the program for this weekend. From the World Premiere by Katherine Balch, who captures the magic of everyday sounds to the dazzling orchestratrion and rhythmic creativity on display in Polovtsian Dances, to Stravinsky's groundbreaking Rite of Spring, arguably one of the most influential pieces of music of the 20th century, rhythm, pulse, experimentation and excitement play a critical role in all three pieces.
