Introductions

Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra: Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring

Play

The full CYSO performs music by Stravinsky.

John von Rhein of the Chicago Tribune wrote that in this performance of the CYSO’s Rite of Spring by Stravinsky, conductor and music director Allen Tinkham’s “…vigorous, communicative baton brought forth an adrenalin rush of superior playing from his high-school-age champs.  I had nothing but admiration for the solo playing in both performances.”  (from “Civic Orchestra, Chicago Youth Symphony have ‘Rite’ stuff (and then some),” June 1, 2011 — link opens pdf file)

Today on Introductions, we’ll hear this performance plus Michael Daugherty’s Route 66 and the Prelude and Liebestod from Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde. It’s this kind of eclectic programming that won the CYSO another first place award from ASCAP for adventurous programming in 2011!
