The Firebird: Suite

May 28 – 30, 2021


GLINKA Overture to Russlan and Ludmilla
PROKOFIEV Violin Concerto No. 2 in G minor
STRAVINSKY The Firebird: Suite (1919)

Vadim Gluzman, “a master of Prokofiev’s musical domain” (Chicago Tribune), will mesmerize and shine in Prokofiev’s expressive and ultimately tumultuous Second Violin Concerto, whose final flurry of notes from the violinist are marked “tumultuoso” and for good reason. A Russian program to end the classical season will highlight the colorfully inventive and hugely influential orchestral sound palettes of Mikhail Glinka and Igor Stravinsky.

IMPORTANT UPDATE (March 2, 2021): It is the DSO’s duty to ensure the safety and health of our employees and patrons when we hold concerts, and we will continue to follow our current protocols backstage and in the front of house with patrons. Masks will be mandatory for staff, patrons, musicians and anyone working in the Meyerson. It has been clearly demonstrated that masks and social distancing slow the spread of COVID-19, and at this time, the CDC is recommending mask wearing in public places. Despite Texas Governor Abbott’s elimination of mask requirements and attendance limits in venues as of March 10, the DSO will require masks in the Meyerson Symphony Center, and we will limit attendance for the remainder of this season.
