CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Performance Thursday, October 2, 2014 | 8 PM

Berliner Philharmoniker

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances is his last major work, a dazzling three-movement orchestral showpiece bursting with color and intense lyricism that weaves threads of Russian Orthodox chant with the harrowing Dies Irae, resulting in a vibrant finale. Stravinsky’s Firebird, the first of the great ballets he wrote for Sergei Diaghilev, is cinematic in its vivid depiction of monsters and infernal dances, and concludes with one of the most thrilling endings in all of music.
