MUSIC IN MOTION: DANCE AND THE FIREBIRD
A Jacobs Masterworks Concert

Malashock Dance

GABRIELA LENA FRANK: Five Scenes (world premiere commissioned by the San Diego Symphony Orchestra)
GINASTERA: Harp Concerto, Op. 25
STRAVINSKY: Suite from The Firebird (1945 version)

Rhythm and dance are the inspiring forces of this Jacobs Masterworks program that features a world premiere orchestration by Gabriela Frank (based on her chamber works and commissioned by the San Diego Symphony) that will be accompanied by dancers of San Diego's dynamic Malashock Dance. Also featured: Alberto Ginastera's Harp Concerto (perhaps the most popular in the repertoire) and Igor Stravinsky's pulse-pounding 1945 suite of his famous 1910 ballet, The Firebird.


San Diego Reader has selected the Ginastera Harp Concerto as their "Esoteric Pick of the Week"! Click here to read their interview with harpist Yolanda Kondonassis.
