STRAVINSKY: Fireworks SIBELIUS: Violin Concerto STRAVINSKY: The Rite of Spring Concert Duration: Approx. 1 hour, 40 minutes with intermission. What’s interesting about this concert: • Violinist Joshua Bell returns with Sibelius’ only violin concerto, a work whose icy and eerie opening melts into expansive passages. • Written for ballet, Stravinsky’s Rite became one of the most influential orchestral works of the 20th century, enjoying popularity uncoupled from the choreography. • The primal rhythms of The Rite of Spring depict games and rituals of sages, dances to the earth, and a climactic sacrifice.
