Stravinsky's Ballet Russe

Stravinsky's Ballet Russe
Audio will be available later today.

Stravinsky caused all sorts of waves with the Ballet Russe, and it's easy to forget that the first one was a good one, pushing its composer straight into the spotlight. The work that did it, the Firebird, is what we hear in concert with the Grand Teton Festival Orchestra and conductor Andrey Boreyko.
