    Les Dissonances
    Dijon Opera

In 1910, a ballet enflamed Paris and projected a young Russian composer to the forefront of the French musical world. If the raw colours of The Firebird can be traced back to Stravinsky’s teacher, Rimsky-Korsakov, they also reveal the iconoclastic and ironic personality of a man who would become one of the greatest composers of the 20th century. The composer’s suite from the ballet will be performed by Les Dissonances, as always without conductor. Next, from the same era, we find a dazzling child prodigy from Vienna. Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s destiny would be rife with drama, however. Exiled to California after the Anschluss, he would devote his talent to film music for Hollywood. The Violin concerto marked his post-war return to instrumental classical music. With its teasing harmonies, constant melodic invention, and transparent orchestration, the score is today the composer’s most beloved work.
