A flash of light, a cascade of sparks, and The Firebird explodes into dazzling life. Well, Stravinsky liked to create a sensation, and we couldn't think of a more fitting way to open our new Season with Music Director Thomas Søndergård. But first, Shostakovich raises the roof, cellist Bruno Delepelaire plays Tchaikovsky’s delightful Rococo Variations and Matthew Rooke, one of Scotland's most original compoers, gives a salute to the sheer joy of music. We can’t wait to share it with you. 

Matthew Rooke    The Isle is Full of Noises!
Shostakovich    Festive Overture
Tchaikovsky    Variations on a Rococo Theme
Stravinsky    The Firebird
