Stravinsky’s Firebird
Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara recorded the songs of Arctic birds, which became the soloists in his fascinating Concerto for Birds and Orchestra, Cantus Arcticus. A bird of a different feather, Stravinsky's The Firebird ballet made its young composer an international sensation. Manfred Honeck conducts the 1919 Firebird suite. The concert begins with Concertmaster Noah Bendix-Balgley and Principal Violist Randolph Kelly in Mozart's elegant Sinfonia Concertante.
