Cape Symphony: Masterpiece I The Firebirds
September 20 - September 21, 2014
JUNG-HO PAK, CONDUCTOR
LINDSAY DEUTSCH, VIOLIN
Three masters. Three sparks that flicker, then burst into flames. This season opener is a musical bonfire, and you’re at the heart of the blaze! Meet our magical firebirds: Stravinsky, the student. Rimsky- Korsakov, his mentor. These musical masters know how to spin the orchestral color wheel and land boldly on red. Red for opulence. Passion. Daring. Adventure. Everything we want in our music – and more! The Firebird Suite is a dazzling freefall through fantasy; the Russian Easter Festival Overture unveils the mysteries of Russian culture and faith. And, with her return to our stage, Lindsay Deutsch proves there’s even more fire in her bow as she takes on Khachaturian’s fiery concerto, the master melodist at his undisputable best. There’s a smoldering fire in all of us. Come see yours ignite!
