Event Info

A true succès de scandale at the time of its 1913 premiere, Igor Stravinsky’s paradigm-smashing Rite of Spring still sounds unshakably fresh and new, even 110 years later. It also demands a spirit of inventiveness and innovation, which the KSO lives up to with Tan Dun’s Passacaglia: The Secret of Wind and Birds, an interactive piece for orchestra and cell phones – with audience participation! Zhenni Li makes her KSO debut performing Ludwig van Beethoven’s luminous Fourth Piano Concerto.
