Stéphane Denève - Conductor
Kelley O'Connor - Mezzo-soprano
Auerbach - Icarus for Orchestra
Lieberson - Neruda Songs
INTERMISSION - Intermission
Stravinsky - The Firebird (complete ballet)

With these concerts our esteemed colleague Stéphane Denève begins his sixth and final season as our principal guest conductor. Soviet-born American composer Lera Auerbach says she was drawn to the myth of Icarus because of “his wish to reach the unreachable, the intensity of the ecstatic brevity of his flight, and the inevitability of his fall.” Her adventurous musical palette exploits the full sonic range of the orchestra: shimmering, soaring, and ultimately dying away. Stravinsky describes a different myth about feathered flight in his Firebird.
