“Season of the Midnight Sun,” highlights a range of Russian and Nordic composers, including Edvard Grieg (Norway’s national composer), Igor Stravinsky, Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky. Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, which caused a riot at its first performance in Paris but is now acknowledged as one of the most influential works of the last century, will be played in its dazzling piano version. The evening’s performers include Mischa Bouvier, baritone; Michael Chertock, piano; Ara Gregorian, violin and viola; Elmar Oliveira, violin; and Yehuda Hanani. This performance is made possible in part through support from Friends of the Orpheum (FOTO).
