The Music Center
Baltimore Symphony Orchestra:
Markus Stenz, conductor
David Fray, piano
Mendelssohn: Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage
Ravel: Piano Concerto in G Major
Stravinsky: The Firebird (Complete)
Principal Guest Conductor Markus Stenz gives us a rare opportunity to hear the color and brilliance of Stravinsky’s complete score for The Firebird, the commission from Diaghilev’s Ballet Russes that catapulted him to fame in pre-WWI Paris. Years later, Paris was again the setting for Ravel’s popular jazz-inflected concerto, a perfect vehicle for the musical refinement and elegance of French pianist David Fray, who makes his BSO debut.
