A flash of light, a cascade of sparks, and The Firebird explodes into dazzling life. Well, Stravinsky liked to create a sensation, and we couldn’t think of a more fitting way to open our new Season with Music Director Thomas Søndergård. But first, Shostakovich raises the roof, cellist Bruno Delepelaire plays Tchaikovsky’s delightful Rococo Variations and Matthew Rooke, one of Scotland’s most original composers, gives a salute to the sheer joy of music. We can’t wait to share it with you.
