What you need to know about this programme:
Igor Stravinsky and Béla Bartók — two of the 20th century’s greatest composers — wrote boundary-pushing music that evoked the landscape and traditions of their native Russia and Hungary. Make no mistake, this programme of masterworks rewards the non-conformist listener who, in life and music, thrives off the beaten path. Rush Hour concerts are designed to get you off the road and into a musical mood — start with happy hour in the lobby, then enjoy a one-hour performance with live commentary delivered via Twitter. Experience the rush!
KARL HIRZER, conductor
