MILHAUD La Création du Monde

STRAVINSKY Firebird Suite

ELGAR Cello Concerto


Our 1919 concert will feature masterworks that came to life at the time the Rochester Symphony was born and are still beloved a century later. Our sojourn moves from a Harlem jazz-inspired account of the world's creation through the fairytale world of the magical Firebird to the meditative beauty of Elgar's last major work. This program showcases the wide variety of musical creativity that surrounded our founding 100 years ago.
