AROUND THE WORLD – Hosting the KSO

February 3 @ 8:00 pm EST - 9:00 pm EST

Commissioned by Broadway producer Billy Rose, Stravinsky’s Scènes de ballet was written for a revue show in New York, and mixes typical Stravinskean rhythmic flare—including a dance in 5/8 time—with the more melodic sensibilities of Broadway. Sumi Kim, Grand Prize winner of the 2022 International Music Festival and Competition, performs Camille Saint-Saëns’ Piano Concerto No. 2; Saint-Saëns wrote the work over just 17 days, with only four days allotted for rehearsal before the Paris premiere in 1868. Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 8 premiered in Moscow in 1943; listen throughout for the motivic interval of a second, which recurs throughout each movement of the work.
