The Rite of Spring
Rossen Milanov, Conductor
Cristina Pato, bagpipes
Mazzoli - Sinfonia
Vasquez - Widows of the Living and the Dead
Stravinsky - The Rite of Spring (McPhee)
The revolutionary ballet The Rite of Spring never fails to inspire with its pagan melodies and earthy rhythms. Missy Mazzoli, composer in residence with Chicago Symphony, is one of the classical music world’s fastest-rising composing talents. Cristina Pato’s magnetic stage presence and virtuosity showcases the bagpipes as a concert instrument in its own right.
Prelude: Join Rossen for a pre-concert discussion.
Postlude: Stay for a chamber music performance by Columbus Symphony musicians.
