ABOUT THIS CONCERT
Magic springs from every moment of Stravinsky’s rapturous, red-hot Firebird, a masterpiece of orchestral innovation that soars through landscapes of wonder and enchantment, then roars its way to a heart-pounding finale. Bold brush strokes and bright primary colors fill Stravinsky’s canvas in his invigorating, classical-inspired concerto, and astounding star Leonidas Kavakos holds nothing back in his return to the Jones Hall stage.
Andrés Orozco-Estrada, conductor
