About This Performance

This concert is supported in part by Robert E. Mortensen

Acclaimed as a “hive mind in which egos dissolve and players think, breathe, and play as one” (Time Out New York), the Israeli Chamber Project presents a concert celebrating the music of Stravinsky and Saint-Saëns. Representing polar extremes of the musical spectrum, the composers famously converged at the premiere of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, during which Saint-Saëns walked out in protest. This program explores a time when the language of music splintered in myriad directions.
