Stravinsky’s music for the ballet The Firebird is joined by Samuel Barber’s beautiful violin concerto with its dazzling virtuoso finale. The soloist is Valeriy Sokolov who, with his highly emotional playing, has established himself as one of the most sought after young violinists.

Stravinsky’s Firebird is based on a Russian folk tale about Prince Ivan who is on his way to his father’s homeland. He wanders into an enchanted garden where the magnificent Firebird every night seeks to eat the golden apples that give eternal youth, beauty and happiness. Prince Ivan manages to catch the bird, but decides to release the bird in exchange for a golden feather. With Stravinsky’s dazzling sonorous music, we can follow the prince’s adventures in the enchanted garden. The orchestra is led by their chief conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali.
