French composer Lili Boulanger’s D’un matin de printemps (Of a Spring Morning) is as delightful and delicate as its name suggests. From this soft Gallic spring to the Nordic fire and ice of Jean Sibelius’ Violin Concerto, the amazing young conductor Ryan Bancroft leads your Kansas City Symphony. They are joined by violin virtuoso Augustin Hadelich, who plays with passion and intelligence, a splendid match for Sibelius’ mighty concerto.
The suite from Tchaikovsky’s ballet score of The Sleeping Beauty is equal parts whimsical and regal. Spinning the tale with memorable music, Tchaikovsky composed one of the most famous waltzes ever — you’ll feel like dancing!
