Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto

Bernstein: Prelude, Fugue and Riffs

Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring

 

From the smoke-filled nightclubs of 1950s New York to the peasant villages of pre-modern Russia, conductor Tito Muñoz kicks off the Yavapai Symphony Association’s 51st season with a bold and colorful program of musical masterpieces. Just over a century has passed since its scandalous premiere, yet Stravinsky’s folkloric ballet The Rite of Spring continues to surprise, excite and enthrall. In Prelude, Fugue and Riffs – a stroke of genius that pivots between poly-rhythmic structures à la Stravinsky and the wailing strains of big band jazz – Muñoz and Principal Clarinetist Alexander Laing usher in a the music of Leonard Bernstein. Virtuoso violinist Philippe Quint performs Tchaikovsky’s sizzling Violin Concerto.
