Legendary for the riot it caused at its Paris premiere a century ago, Stravinsky’s greatest ballet score changed music forever, yet still sounds as though it was written yesterday. Debussy’s lithe and lush Prelude was equally ground-breaking in its day, while Prokofiev’s Concerto, wistful and brash by turns and featuring rising star violinist Fumiaki Miura, provides a bridge between French Impressionism and Russian fireworks.

Program includes Debussy’s Prelude to The Afternoon of a Faun; Violin Concerto No. 2 of Prokofiev and Stravinsky’sThe Rite of Spring. Danail Rachev, conductor. Visit Organizer link to purchase tickets.
