TSO Classics: The Firebird
PRESENTED BY: Tulsa Symphony
Conducted by Daniel Hege, this program will elicit smiles from seasoned concertgoers and first-timers alike. Haydnís Symphony No. 90 offers glimpses into his humorous, prankster side. Kodaly paints in impressionistic orchestral colors the comedic tale of a Hungarian-style Don Quixote in his "HŠry JŠnos Suite." And Stravinsky captivates listeners with his ballet music suite The Firebird. Even without the ballet theater, Stravinskyís music summons the imagination to delight in Russian fairy tales of the magical glowing bird that can be a blessing or a curse to its owner.
