Fantastique Voyage

When: Thu., May 29 2014

Conductor Vladimir Jurowski leads The Cleveland Orchestra in Severance Hall tonight as it performs three 20th-century works. A suite from Sergei Prokofiev's 1940 ballet Cinderella features some of the composer's most melodic music, depicting the classic fairytale in lush imagery. Inspired by the life of bees, Scherzo fantastique is one of Igor Stravinsky's early orchestral works. In the midst of a world tour, violinist Janine Jansen joins the orchestra for Benjamin Britten's Violin Concerto. This work was composed in 1938 and 1939 and contains subtle nods to Beethoven, Prokofiev and Bach. Tonight’s concert begins at 7:30 with repeat performances at 11 a.m. tomorrow (sans concerto) and at 8 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets start at $31. (Gonzalez)
