Overview

Cristian Măcelaru - Conductor

 

Prokofiev - Symphony No. 1 ("Classical")

Ginastera - Variaciones concertantes

Stravinsky - The Rite of Spring

 

Just as Stravinsky's Rite of Spring pays homage to past Russian folk traditions, Prokofiev's neo-Classical Symphony No. 1 draws its whimsy and virtuosity from the past world of Haydn. This thrilling, highly virtuosic work precedes Ginastera's Variaciones concertantes, which features multiple soloists and various sections of the orchestra. It's also inspired by the music's folk roots, infusing Argentinian harmonies and gestures into a work that is propulsive and infectiously melodic. This program is a chance to hear the musicians of The Philadelphia Orchestra shine as individuals and a collective whole--from the intimacy of Prokofiev's "Classical" Symphony, to the solo features of Ginastera's Variaciones concertantes, to the full-throated roar of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring.
