LPO Conductor Emeritus Vladimir Jurowski presents Richard Strauss’s spectacular, symphonic retelling of Don Quixote: complete with sorcerers, knights, and windmills.
Don Quixote Rides Again
London Philharmonic Orchestra
Watch Principal Conductor Edward Gardner and the London Philharmonic Orchestra play two great works; Lutoslawski’s Symphony No.4 and Stravinsky’s untamable The Rite of Spring.
When The Rite of Spring premiered in Paris in May 1913, it started a riot – or so the story goes. Even 109 years on, every performance of The Rite is still an adventure. Expect spine-tingling thrills and explosive playing. It’s a gripping counterpart to Lutoslawski’s atmospheric Fourth Symphony, a late masterpiece from one of Gardner’s favorite composers.
Lutoslawski - Symphony No.4
Stravinsky - The Rite of Spring
