Musical polymath Libby Burgess and acclaimed conductor-pianist Chris Hopkins combine forces to perform one of the great works of the twentieth century, Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring. This electrifying music provoked riots and disbelief when it was premiered in 1913. The composer's own piano duet arrangement is virtuosic and gripping. Not to be missed.
Both this concert and The Lark Ascending at 1pm are dedicated to the memory of Igor Judge.
"There is music wherever there is rhythm, as there is life wherever there beats a pulse"Igor Stravinsky
