Tonight’s program unfurls a magical mystery tour that sweeps us away to the mysterious innocence of childhood and French fairy tales and continues on to the magic and majesty of Russian folklore. Carl St.Clair has selected the final movements of Ravel’s “Mother Goose” Suite and Stravinsky’s “Firebird.” Both works are colorfully orchestrated special arrangements for chamber ensembles, rather than large orchestra. And—spoiler alert—both have deliriously happy endings.
This performance will be available for FREE streaming through April 23.
