Celebrated conductor Marin Alsop returns to the International Festival with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra in a two-concert series. In the first, they are joined by Jean-Yves Thibaudet in a programme of Stravinsky, Schumann and Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue.

Baltimore Symphony Orchestra
Marin Alsop | Conductor
Jean-Yves Thibaudet | Piano

Stravinsky | The Firebird Suite (1919)
Gershwin | Piano Concerto
Schumann | Symphony No 2

Driven, demanding, brilliantly energetic, US conductor Marin Alsop creates performances that blaze with conviction. She is also famously a protégée of the great composer, conductor and pianist Leonard Bernstein. As part of the International Festival’s centenary celebrations of Bernstein’s larger-than-life genius, Alsop brings together three pieces closely associated with the great man. Witty, flamboyant French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet is the soloist in the riffs and romps of Gershwin’s breezy Piano Concerto. Stravinsky’s The Firebird is a sumptuous fairytale of glittering colour and tremendous power. The concert closes with the restless vigour of Schumann’s profoundly searching Symphony No 2.
