The Rite of Spring


Wed Jul 19 2023


6:00 pm

This powerhouse program opens with pianists Gilles Vonsattel and Inon Barnatan playing two works for duo pianos—Debussy’s En blanc et noir and Stravinsky’s own arrangement of his ballet The Rite of Spring—and it closes with Brahms’s sunny String Quintet in G Major, a work the composer intended to mark his retirement (but didn’t) and that here marks the Festival return of violist and former Artistic Director Heiichiro Ohyama.
