The Stravinsky Project

April 8 – 10, 2011
The  Music Center at Strathmore
National Gallery of Art
Washington, DC – Bethesda, MD

Rediscover the music that changed everything, shocking audiences of the early 20th century and continuing to shape the course of the art through the 1960s. In this program you will hear Stravinsky’s searing Les Noces, written for chorus, pianos and percussion and the Russian folk wedding songs that inspired the piece; his explosive Concerto for Piano and Winds and Symphonies for Wind Instruments, which inaugurated his neo-classical period.
