In fin-de-siècle Paris, Stravinsky's scores for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes caused a sensation. But there’s more than one way to change the world, and with his Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune, Claude Debussy created a realm of sensuous beauty that was decades ahead of its time. Alondra de la Parra reveals all that wonder tonight, and partners the young Italian pianist Luca Buratto in the concerto of silver and steel that Prokofiev wrote in a Russia on the brink of revolution. And then something completely different: the sunshine, birdsong and unbridled melody of what's surely Antonín Dvořák's happiest symphony.
