The Firebird, Ballet (1910)


the music

It was on the shores of Lake Geneva, in Clarens, that Tchaikovsky took refuge to escape the facade marriage which had traumatized him. He then composed the Violin Concerto in D major which, like many masterpieces, was misunderstood before gaining popularity around the world. Very close to the OSR and Ernest Ansermet its founder, Stravinsky had offered our orchestra an orchestral suite taken from his Firebird, but it is indeed the complete ballet in the opulent original version of 1910 that we will hear during this concert.
