Calendar Stravinsky's Petrushka
Yan Pascal Tortelier, conductor
Augustin Hadelich, violin
Dukas: The Sorcerer’s Apprentice
Chausson: Poème for Violin and Orchestra
Ravel: Tzigane for Violin and Orchestra
Stravinsky: Petrushka (1947)
A superb music colorist and BSO favorite, Tortelier has conjured up an enchanting French-inspired program that has a hint of mystery and just a touch of the sinister. Dukas’ magicians pull the strings as apprentices reach too far, and Stravinsky’s puppets dare to dream of love. Violinist Augustin Hadelich’s fingers fly through two evocative works: gypsies tease in the flashy Tzigane, while a spurned lover has the last word in Poème. This is truly a program designed to show off the wizardry of the BSO!
