Gimeno + The Rite of Spring

Its primordial pulse is all-consuming and intoxicating. A century after The Rite of Spring’s scandalous première, its undertow of swirling menace, snarling brutality, and visceral, provocative power continues to astound. The extraordinary James Ehnes brings the crisp, neoclassical colours of Stravinsky’s concerto into razor-sharp focus, while Lili Boulanger’s shimmering Impressionistic feast saturates the senses with dew-covered leaves and fragrant blossoms. A work by her elder sister, Nadia—one of the most influential composition teachers of the 20th century—introduces the program. (Pictured: Gustavo Gimeno)

This concert is available in the Wednesday 1 and Thursday 1 subscription series.
