Stravinsky’s Firebird

A magical and mysterious showpiece, Stravinksy’s Firebird contains some of his best-loved music, from the primeval Infernal Dance to its spectacular, breath-taking finale. Percussionist Colin Currie returns to premiere a concerto written expressly for him by composer Andy Akiho, lauded by The New York Times as “mold-breaking,” “dramatic,” and “vital.” Classical Series Concert
