Rhythm, Passion, Fate!

We open our season with a salute to rhythm. Stravinsky’s Petroushka is one if the composer’s earliest examples of mastery. In many ways, the piece set the stage for the Rite of Spring, appearing only two years after this ballet. We will be performing the original 1911 version, the version the young Stravinsky intended when it was composed. Also on the program is Silvestre Revueltas’ homage to sacrifice, Sensemaya. Revueltas’ music is highly evocative and will transport audiences to long-forgotten rituals and new musical vistas. Add to that Utah native and favorite pianist Josh Wright playing Saint-Saëns’ Piano Concerto No. 2, and it’s an evening to remember. Don’t miss it!
