The Firebird

When: Fri., Jan. 12, 8 p.m. and Sun., Jan. 14, 2:30 p.m. 2018

Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra opens the year’s programming with an evening of works by four iconic composers, led by guest conductor Juanjo Mena. The program, set for tonight and Sunday, opens with a somewhat belated Pittsburgh premiere: Printemps, an early work by Debussy. Ibert’s Flute Concerto follows, featuring principal flutist Lorna McGhee (pictured). A virtual dance set by two 20th-century masters follows: Ravel’s suite of waltzes titled Valses Nobles et Sentimentales, and The Firebird, the 1919 version of Stravinsky’s score for his first major ballet.-Bill O’Driscoll
