Mirga Conducts The Firebird.

Programme

  • Weinberg Rhapsody on Moldavian Themes13′
  • Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto34′
  • Stravinsky The Firebird45′

When Igor Stravinsky composed The Firebird, he didn’t only imagine a world of enchanted princesses, courageous heroes and green-clawed demons: he let us hear it, too. Expect Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla to revel in Stravinsky’s magical colours, while the phenomenal Patricia Kopatchinskaja will positively dance through Tchaikovsky’s much-loved concerto. Together, they share another extraordinary Weinberg rediscovery – a fiery, folksy journey through the landscape of Moldova.

CBSO+ 2 May, 1pm: CBSO violinist Catherine Arlidge MBE discusses Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto with violin soloist Patricia Kopatchinskaja and Osborn Music Director Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla.
