Mälkki Conducts Stravinsky and Lara

Mar 29 - Mar 31


Felipe Lara’s Double Concerto, written specifically for flutist Claire Chase and jazz bassist and singer esperanza spalding, employs a vast array of effects from both soloists. In Petrushka Stravinsky created an exciting new world of sound — shifting rhythms and keys, and echoes of a barrel organ — to tell the story of a puppet love triangle set at a Shrovetide Fair. Susanna Mälkki conducts.
