Rautavaara Piano Concerto no. 1
Arvo Pärt Trisagion
Stravinsky Symphony in Three Movements
A Finnish first half includes two works by Rautavaara: the Debussy-inspired Anadyomene and the eclectic First Piano Concerto that concludes with a thrilling moto perpetuo. The soloist is finalist Jakub Watrobski and PhD student Owen Burton, whose focus is the music of Rautavaara, conducts Anadyomene. Stravinsky’s symphony is a tour de force ending the concert in a blaze of glory, but is prefaced with Pärt’s beautiful and often gentle work for strings that closely mirrors Orthodox texts.
