Legends. Folktales. Stories. Written words and oral stories inspire the music for this program. Sibelius composed music for a political pageant depicting historical events with the hope of stirring Finnish and Karelian patriotism. Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky, two renowned Russian composers, wrote ballets about two different but mesmerizing mythical birds. Dancers from Olympic Performance Group will join the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra in bringing Tchaikovsky’s "Swan Lake" to life. Finally, Modest Mussorgsky, inspired by the drawings of Victor Hartmann, composed a set of pieces for piano. The French composer Maurice Ravel transcribed the music for orchestra and his sparkling creation has immortalized "Pictures at an Exhibition." From the many promenades to the depiction of the witch Baba-Yaga, this program’s musical storytelling offers a sonorous journey of passion and magic.
