Virtuose playing with the Gothenburg Symphony, Santtu-Matias Rouvali conductor and Bruce Liu piano, and Stravinsky's Rite of Spring.
Experience the pagan rites of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, notes that once turned the music world upside down. Initially, Tchaikovsky’s beloved piano concerto is given new life in the hands of acclaimed Canadian pianist Bruce Liu. Santtu-Matias Rouvali conducts the Gothenburg Symphony.
Once you’ve heard the impressive introductions to Tchaikovsky’s first piano concerto, you’ll never forget them. The winner of the Chopin Competition 2021, Canadian pianist Bruce Liu, was born in 1997 and already has it in his repertoire. He is quite alone having that so early in his career.
The ballet Rite of Spring changed the course of musical history and created a scandal in 1913 with its exciting rhythms and innovative language. The commotion drowned the music and 40 people from the audience had to be escorted out. It was both the choreography, the scenography and the music that upset. Today it is the favorite of many, not least after Disney had dinosaurs dance to the pagan ritual music in the film Fantasia in 1940.
And history would thank Stravinsky. The Rite of Spring became one of the three ballets, along with The Firebird and Petrushka, that put the composer on the music map forever.
