BSO: Stravinsky Pulcinella
Sunday, November 24, 2019, 3pm
The Music Center
Baltimore Stravinsky Orchestra
Written for a trio of singers and orchestra, Stravinsky’s Pulcinella is a sparkling evocation of the world of commedia dell’arte clowns. Marin Alsop introduces us to a brilliant and mesmerizing voice—that of the Russian-American composer and pianist Lera Auerbach, who brings grandeur and intensity to her large-scale orchestra music. The program is rounded out by Prokofiev’s witty “Classical” Symphony and Brahms’ boisterous Academic Festival Overture.
