In an intimate A Little Night Music Study on Stravinsky, pianist Jenny Lin makes her Mostly Mozart debut performing Stravinsky’s Four Etudes and The Firebird: Danse infernal, Berceuse, and Finale arranged by Agosti, as well as Valentin Silvestrov’s Der Bote (“The Messenger”); Mozart’s Andantino, from Piano Concerto No.9 in E-flat major, arranged by Busoni, and Fantasia in C minor completed by Stadler.

 

As a part of Mostly Mozart’s focus on Stravinsky, we’re presenting Stravinsky on Film.  Join us in the Walter Reade Theater on August 6 for a documentary on Stravinsky; 1969 footage of him conducting the Hungarian Radio Orchestra in Symphony of Psalms; a 1992 performance of Oedipus Rex directed by Julie Taymor and featuring Jessye Norman; and The Rite of Spring performed by Pina Bausch’s Tanztheater Wuppertal and The Cleveland Orchestra conducted by Pierre Boulez. 

Not included in the program:  this footage of Stravinsky conducting his Firebird suite.  If you like this, the program at Walter Reade will be even better (and much higher quality).
