Myths and Rites at The Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center
August 6 @ 3:00 pm
Inon Barnatan, Zoltán Fejérvári, Tessa Lark, Blake Pouliot
Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, a musical depiction of a pagan ritual, is considered one of the most groundbreaking and influential pieces in the history of music. It has inspired countless composers, induced a near-riot at its premiere, and even inspired Walt Disney to accompany the story of the planet’s creation and the extinction of the dinosaurs in his film Fantasia. In this concert we’ll hear it in the composers’ arrangement for two pianists, proceeded by enchanting pieces inspired by Greek mythology.
Orpheus, S.98 (arr. Saint-Saëns for Piano Trio)
“Melodie” from Orfeo ed Euridice
Myths, Op. 30
The Rite of Spring (Arr. for Two Pianos)
