What You'll Get
LUCO closes out its 21st season in grand style at Seattle's Meany Studio Theater with works from a pair of famed neo-classical Russian composers, under the baton of its music director and conductor Christophe Chagnard. First up is Circus Polka for a Young Elephant, by Igor Stravinsky, created at the request of ballet master George Balanchine and just as evocative and delightful as you'd imagine. The symphony's principal cellist, Michael Center, steps into the solo spotlight for Dmitri Shostakovich's Cello Concerto No. 1, and the concert builds to a climax with the same composer's Symphony No. 8, a WWII-era piece that was banned by the government after it failed to appeal to the Russian patriotic ideal, but is known for its dramatic power.
