At a Glance

If you’ve ever enjoyed one of the brilliant concert suites lifted from Stravinsky’s ballet The Firebird, you’ve heard a synopsis. Here’s a rare chance to hear the whole ballet unfold in all its glory. This is big bold music, and we balance that with Mozart’s Fourth Violin Concerto—which is porcelain perfection. And there is no finer Mozartian today than guest violinist Baiba Skride.

Artists

  • Minnesota Orchestra
  • Dima Slobodeniouk, conductor
  • Baiba Skride, violin

Did You Know?

  • One man’s finale is another man’s opener. Prog-rock staples Yes used the ending section of Stravinsky’s Firebird ballet as their walk-on music at live performances.
  • Growing up in the Soviet Union, violinist Baiba Skride simply dreamed of visiting somewhere outside of Latvia even just once in her life. Now she shares her refreshing interpretations and delightful style with audiences all over the world.
  • Russian-Finnish conductor Dima Slobodeniouk currently holds the position of principal conductor of the Lahti Symphony Orchestra in Finland, the same position our own Osmo Vänskä held from 1988 until 2008.
