About Gustavo Gimeno Conducts the Firebird
Gustavo Gimeno, the TSO's next Music Director, returns to the podium to lead the Orchestra in the ever-popular suite from Stravinsky’s blazing, fairy-tale-inspired ballet. Sibelius’s virtuosic "Violin Concerto"—a majestically lyrical evocation of the North, and the only concerto he ever composed—features the TSO’s supremely talented Concertmaster, Jonathan Crow, as soloist. Prokofiev’s light and spirited First Symphony, “Classical,” rounds out this final program.
