Iván Fischer on Igor Stravinsky: “For me, he embodies the character of the 20th century in his provocative, modern language. He came up with new sounds, rhythms and harmonies, and above all, a very intellectual, witty and humorous new style of music. He created brilliant works in all areas that have become favourites and remained modern to this day.” During “Absolut Strawinsky!” week, our honorary conductor will be our guest with three closely associated orchestras, which he calls his “musical families”. The Konzerthausorchester will kick off the series. The programme includes music for the ballets “Jeu de cartes” choreographed by George Balanchine, “Ode”, the neoclassical violin concerto from 1931 featuring the French star violinist Renaud Capuçon and the suite from the ballet “The Firebird” with its colourful folkloric story, in which “a modern musical language is infused with simple pentatonic or Russian folk melodies.” (Fischer)
