ABOUT THIS CONCERT
Ferocious. Provocative. Intoxicating. A century after its riotous premiere, The Rite of Spring’s pounding rhythms, propulsive energy, and sheer sonic impact remain an electrifying experience unlike anything else in all of art. Music Director Juraj Valčuha leads this groundbreaking masterpiece as part of a two-week spotlight on works that scandalized the artistic establishments of their day. You’ll recognize Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 from the very first note, and in the hands of the sensational Khatia Buniatishvili, it promises to bring down the house. Revueltas’s rowdy and relentless Sensemayá opens the concert.
