The Rite of Spring
Saturday, November 17, 2012
Winner of the 2011 International Tchaikovsky Competition, emerging young pianist Daniil Trifonov joins Charles Dutoit for Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto, which features what is surely the most recognizable of all concerto openings. Bookending this stellar debut are two vivid evocations of Russia’s pagan past: Mussorgsky’s phantasmagoric A Night on Bald Mountain and Stravinsky’s electrifying ballet, The Rite of Spring, in which a young maiden dances herself to death.
This event has LIMITED AVAILABILITY. Please call 312-294-3000 for returned ticket availability and additional seating options.
