Igor Stravinsky Petrushka
Soloist: Steven Schick, percussion (pictured)
Our 64th season asks questions about lineage: Where do we come from? How does the music of our past inform our understanding of the future? We begin with Lineage, a piece by the young Canadian composer Zosha de Castri, who recalls how her grandmother’s tales shaped her own sense of being Canadian. Stravinsky’s Petrushka was inspired by his memories of Russian Shrovetide fairs, in all their color and excitement. Finally, everything on the planet began with water, and in celebration, Music Director Steven Schick gives up his baton to solo in Tan Dun’s Water Concerto, with Michael Gerdes conducting.
