About This Performance

This concert is supported in part by Robert E. Mortensen

2021 marked the 50th anniversary of Stravinsky’s death and the 100th anniversary of Saint-Saëns’s death. The two represented the polar extremes on the musical spectrum, with Saint-Saëns clutching on to lush 19th century Romanticism just as Stravinsky led the modernist avant-garde. Their paths famously converged at the riotous 1913 premiere of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, with Saint-Saëns walking out in protest. Through the music of these and other giants of the early twentieth century’s ICP explores this turbulent time when the Old World Order itself (both in and out of music) fell under question and the language of music splintered in a myriad of directions.
