Igor Stravinsky Firebird Suite (1919)

In this highly anticipated collaboration, the Savannah Philharmonic and Savannah Music Festival (SMF) present quintessentially American jazz-inflected orchestral works composed by George Gershwin and SMF Associate Artistic Director and pianist Marcus Roberts. The evening’s program is bookended with exhilarating compositions by Alexander Borodin and Igor Stravinsky, each drawing heavily from Russian folkloric traditions and written for opera and ballet, respectively.
