Programme

  • Stravinsky Funeral Song12′
  • Shostakovich Violin Concerto No. 138′
  • Lithuanian Folk Songs5′(27 June only)
  • Stravinsky The Rite of Spring32′

When The Rite of Spring was premiered in 1913, it caused a riot, and with Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla conducting, Stravinsky’s revolutionary ballet still delivers quite a punch! Add the Birmingham premiere of a lost work by Stravinsky, hear the Lithuanian folk songs that inspired The Rite (27 June only), add Nicola Benedetti in Shostakovich’s powerful First Violin Concerto – and we’re ending the season at maximum voltage.

CBSO+ 27 June, 6.15pm: A pre-concert sharing from the CBSO World War 1 Learning & Participation project.

The concert on 27 June will be recorded for live broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
