About

NSO Music Director Christoph Eschenbach conducts Stravinsky's Le Sacre du printemps ("The Rite of Spring") on a program that also includes Mozart's Flute Concerto No. 2 featuring NSO Principal Flute Aaron Goldman.

About Stravinsky's Le Sacre du printemps:
What begins as a primal celebration of spring soon surges into a frenzy, pushing instruments to the extreme before culminating in a shocking ritual of human sacrifice. Its groundbreaking avant-garde nature caused a riot at the ballet's 1913 premiere. Stravinsky's powerful music continues to thrill audiences more than a century later.

Sue Heineman, NSO principal bassoon, on Stravinsky's Le Sacre du printemps:
"According to Stravinsky, the opening of Le Sacre du printemps represents the awakening of nature. The bassoon starts things off in the high register--a sound unusual enough that many at the first performance couldn't identify the instrument."

Aaron Goldman on Mozart's Flute Concerto No. 2:
"Mozart's Flute Concerto No. 2 is full of life. There are moments of exhilarating brilliance as well as loving, poetic tenderness."

Performance Timing: Part One - 37 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Part Two - 35 min.
