Orchestral fairy tales to dazzle your senses.
Who doesn’t love to get lost in a great story? Here are two musical fables as compelling as the latest best-seller. In Ravel’s Mother Goose suite, you meet Sleeping Beauty, Tom Thumb and Beauty and the Beast in meltingly beautiful settings. The Russian legend of the Firebird inspired Stravinsky to create rich and exquisite music. Prokofiev’s action-packed piano concerto is hugely tuneful—and so is Gràzyna Bacewicz’s exhilarating Overture.
Join us at the Meeting Hall (located just behind Adelaide Town Hall) one hour before the concert for our free Classical Conversations and hear from conductor Teresa Riveiro-Bohm and Celia Craig in discussion of the repertoire and Teresa’s career as an emerging conductor.
