Prokofiev Symphony No.1 Classical
Tchaikovsky Variations on a Rococo Theme
Diego Matheuz conductor
Li-Wei Qin cello
‘I had a vision of a puppet, suddenly endowed with life,’ Stravinsky said of the work that would become one of his greatest successes. In this vividly rendered ballet of a puppet with a soul and his fantastic adventures, Tchaikovsky looks back to the music of his idol, Mozart, and pays homage to the classical spirit.
Gillian Howell will lead young musicians of the MSO ArtPlay program in the performance of an exciting new Stravinsky-based composition.
