FIREBIRD

Rejoicing will oppose the “force of fate” – Verdi vs. Stravinsky. And a filigree stylization like Rococo-Intermezzo. “Firebird” is a fairytale work by the young Stravinsky, a magical score, where the timbres are colors, and aromas, and touches, and the orchestra burns like a feather from a bird’s tail. The poetic and super-virtuosic Variations of Tchaikovsky are also winged, especially trembling in the hands of a virtuoso like the Hungarian László Fenyö; Verdi’s famous overture flies on heavy wings as well. A concert with a concept, a crowning concert, entrusted to the already known to the public teacher and conductor – Maestro Johannes Schlaefli.
