Symphonic Dances

Mercury Orchestra
Channing Yu, conductor

The Mercury Orchestra commemorates the 100th anniversary of the wild, chaotic premiere of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, with its relentless irregular driving rhythms, sharp harmonic ambiguities, and magnificent power. Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances, his final composition, fuses a similarly adamant kineticism with intensive, poignant, and beautiful lyricism.
