A flash of light, a swirl of sound – and deep in a magical kingdom, the enchanted Firebird darts across the sky. In a sultry French twilight, young people play delicious new games. And the love of Wagner’s life wakes from her sleep to hear the sweetest music he ever wrote. Guest conductor Lorenzo Viotti unfolds each tale tonight, and the fabulous French pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet offers an anniversary gift to music’s supreme master of fantasy and colour: Claude Debussy.
