The Program

  • Bartók—Suite to The Miraculous Mandarin: Written in the aftermath of World War I, The Miraculous Mandarin aimed to shock a world that had been scarred into numbness. Through plenty of lewdness and gore, the ballet tells of a man from a distant land whose lust is so great he cannot be killed. Bartók’s score sets the scene of a restless metropolis with an assault of horns, and the timpani rouses the lower instincts while the trombones dance a sensual waltz.
  • Bartók—Piano Concerto No. 3: The first composition Bartók ever wrote was for his favorite instrument, the piano—and so was this one, his very last. Written as a gift to his wife in the final months of his life, his third concerto contrasts with the first two with a gentle, shimmering melody. The cheerful mood that pervades throughout is in stark contrast with Bartók’s circumstances—wasting away from cancer in self-imposed exile due to the rise of the Nazis.
  • Stravinsky—The Firebird Suite: Inspired by a fairytale from Russian folklore, this ballet score hits all the classic fairytale notes: a dashing prince captures the titular magical firebird, but releases it in exchange for help against a terrible evil, the demon Kastchei. The piece’s enchanting narrative, marked by flitting woodwinds and rumbling brass, captured the attention of the world upon its 1910 debut, rocketing Stravinsky to international stardom.
