Why See Los Angeles Philharmonic - Salonen's Stravinsky: Myths?
Stravinsky's Myth Ballet
Join Esa-Pekka Salonen as he delves into two of Stravinsky's ballets, the melodious Orpheus and the rarely performed lyrical wonder that is Persephone in a program that will highlight the meticulous detail of the composer in the way only Salonen can.
Composed in 1947 and making heavy use of the harp, the instrument associated with Orpheus through antiquity, this piece marked the first collaboration between Stravinsky and George Balanchine. Containing a multitude of characters from Greek Mythology, including Furies, Satyrs, and more, Stravinsky's score is praised a neoclassical evocation of Beethoven that finds beauty through restraint.
With soloists, dancers, the LA Master Chorale, The Children's Chorus and narration from Paul Groves, this large scale 'melodrama' is a transcendent example of Stravinsky's navigation of the neoclassical style.
