Stravinsky Rite of Spring Friday, September 15, 2017 7:30PM - Saturday, September 16, 2017 7:30PM   ·   More Info »


Tito Muñoz, conductor

Bernstein: Prelude, Fugue and Riffs
Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto
Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring

From the smoke-filled nightclubs of 1950s New York to the peasant villages of premodern Russia, Virginia G. Piper Music Director Tito Muñoz kicks off the 70th Anniversary season with a bold and colorful program of musical masterpieces. Just over a century has passed since its scandalous premiere, yet Stravinsky’s folkloric ballet The Rite of Spring continues to surprise, excite and enthrall. In Prelude, Fugue and Riffs – a stroke of genius that pivots between polyrhythmic structures à la Stravinsky and the wailing strains of big band jazz – Muñoz and Principal Clarinetist Alexander Laing usher in a season-long focus on the music of Leonard Bernstein. Virtuoso violinist Philippe Quint returns to Symphony Hall to perform Tchaikovsky’s sizzling Violin Concerto.

Mahler: Adagio from Symphony No. 10
Bernstein: Symphony No. 1, “Jeremiah”
Brahms: Symphony No. 1

Leonard Bernstein once exclaimed, “The work I have been writing all my life is about the struggle that is born of the crisis of our century: a crisis of faith.” With the “Jeremiah” Symphony, Bernstein began a musical exploration of his religious faith that would inspire many of his serious compositions. Johannes Brahms experienced his own crisis while composing his monumental First Symphony – that of escaping the shadow of Beethoven. Experience how these struggles gave way to two modern classics with Tito Muñoz and The Phoenix Symphony.
