Kansas City Symphony Classical Series
ENCHANTING and EXOTIC: FIREBIRD, ALADDIN and RACHMANINOFF
Helzberg Hall | Kauffman Center
Stravinsky’s Firebird is an enchanting, dramatic fairytale that boasts some of classical music’s most vivid and glorious orchestral writing. Rachmaninoff’s First Piano Concerto highlights the composer’s trademarks — lingering melodies, rich textures and piano pyrotechnics. With exotic harmonies and bewitching tunes, Nielsen’s Aladdin Suite is an adventurous romp in a faraway land. The White Peacock is one of Griffes’ best-known Impressionist works.
