Stories, Songsters, Storms

At the heart of Wagner’s best-loved comic opera, Die Meistersinger is the story of love, art, and youth vs. age as told thorough his bright and agreeable prelude. Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite (1919) uses the music to create a dynamic re-telling of the mythical story. Melodic and appealing Bruch’s energetic and sonorous violin concerto tells the story of a composer before his time. Witty’s After the Rain washes over us and takes us beyond the storm.
