A Musical Evening with Maestro Hans Graf: Igor Stravinsky

eventdetail

Igor Stravinsky shifted the path of 20th century music. His The Rite of Spring ballet caused riots during its premiere. Stravinsky's career, however, suggests more of an evolution than a revolution — he wrote in a myriad of different styles. 

The evening will include a talk by Houston Symphony's maestro Hans Graf, a performance of Stravinsky's Italian Suite by Mark Cheikhet (violin) and Elena Portnaya (piano), and conclude with a screening of a documentary about the composer.
