InterviewValery Gergiev in conversation with Stephan Koncz
Valery Gergiev conducts Stravinsky’s “Firebird”
Music based on three colourful Russian fairytales are to be heard in this concert with Valerie Gergiev: the bloodthirsty story of The Golden Cockerel set to music by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, excerpts from Prokofiev’s humorous and charming ballet Cinderella, and from Stravinsky, his iridescent, energetic Firebird. The concert opens with another magical, but very different work: Debussy’s Prélude a l'après-midi d'un faune.
