Event Description

Prepare to take flight! From the first notes of Aghaei & Jacobsen’s Ascending Bird, we find ourselves transported into the textural world of a bird’s attempted flight into the sun. Saint-Saën’s soothing The Swan and commanding Cello Concerto No. 1 feature the inimitable talents of Armenian cellist Narek Hakhnazaryan, while Respighi’s Fountains of Rome and Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite close out the program with compositional intrigue that is at once frenetically playful and undeniably powerful.
