Stravinsky made his name with the opulent, dazzling score to The Firebird, based on the legend of a prince and a magical creature who break an evil spell. Just a decade later, he ushered in an era of simplicity and elegance with Pulcinella. These colorful ballet suites are paired with the breathtaking Sibelius Violin Concerto, featuring Grammy winner Augustin Hadelich.
