     Join acclaimed pianists Lois Shapiro and Randall Hodgkinson for a rare two-piano performance of Stravinsky’s revolutionary ballets, Petrouchka and The Firebird. Guest performers include Colin Gee, mime, and exceptional Wellesley student pianists in a six-hand arrangement by Mr. Hodgkinson. The program will also feature the world premiere of Martin Brody’s True Pete, offering a fresh exploration of Petrouchka that inverts Stravinsky's approach to the character as existential persona. Each work will involve the intimate marriage of music (Melos) with some extra-musical narrative or theatrical element (Mythos).
