If you caught the Nashville Ballet’s stunning Rite of Spring/Firebird show earlier this year, then you got a preview of the Nashville Symphony performing the latter of the two pieces, as members of the NSO constituted the pit orchestra for the show. The Firebird suite, written by Igor Stravinsky a little over a century ago, launched the young Russian composer’s career, bringing him international fame for this imaginative, evocative piece that draws its inspiration from Russian folklore. In it, Stravinsky combines the charm of Russian folk music with exciting rhythmic orchestration to thrilling effect.
