The edge-of-your-seat symphonic action goes into top gear in a concert of musical fireworks, savage rhythms, and extreme virtuosity for the soloist and orchestra alike. SSO opens with audience-thriller pianist Alexander Tutunov on George Gershwin’s jazzy and explosive Piano Concerto in F. The second half of the concert will feature Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, a ballet featuring primitive rituals celebrating the advent of spring, in which a young girl is chosen as a sacrificial victim and dances herself to death. Rite of Spring was revolutionary for its use of aboriginal and Russian folk music into a setting for ballet, and it continues to amaze and astound audiences today with its intense rhythms and haunting, untamed melodies.
