The Russian Tradition: Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky
Saturday, February 10, 2018 at 8 pm
The Madison Theatre at Molloy College

David LaMarche, Guest Conductor

Tchaikovsky – Excerpts from Swan Lake

Stravinsky – The Rite of Spring

Tchaikovsky had great respect for the conventions of writing for ballet, but his ballet scores, of which Swan Lake was the first, are also masterpieces of orchestra writing. Of course, with the ballet it was meant to accompany, the power of the music is often subsumed in the beauty of the dance. This concert will provide an opportunity to enjoy this music for its own sake. With his revolutionary score The Rite of Spring, Igor Stravinsky created an unforgettable musical panorama of primitive Russia and its intimate and sometimes savage relationship with nature. Maestro David LaMarche, the highly acclaimed conductor of the world renowned American Ballet Theatre, brings the experience of countless performances with the most famous ballet dancers of our time to create his own unique interpretation of these great works.
