Igor Stravinsky - The Rite of Spring
Johannes Brahms - Violin Concerto
- Featuring Phoenix Avalon, Violinist
Pre-Concert Talk at 6:15 PM
Phoenix Avalon, the virtuosic youth who is soloing with us for the sixth consecutive season, dares to play the Violin Concerto by Johannes Brahms! This work was deemed unplayable by all professional violinists known to Brahms at the time of its composition, but to behold young Avalon tackle this monstrous work will be an event sure to fill you with awe.
Boulder Symphony closes its season with the show-stopping, jaw-dropping, riot-inciting work that is still controversial today! Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring boasts an astounding 104th anniversary this month since its controversial premiere with the Ballet Russe at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées on May 29, 1913. This work is sure to evoke feelings of primal excitement and exhilaration, leaving orchestra, conductor and audience feeling as though they too have danced to their death!
