Sit down and feel the heat! The sparks in this evening’s concert are provided by the torch-bearer Prometheus, the smoking violin strings of Ravel’s “Tzigane”, a symphony derived from Prokofiev’s opera “The Fiery Angel” and Yann Robin’s Nirvana-inspired “Ashes”. Ludovic Morlot, Chief Conductor of the Seattle Symphony Orchestra, and Nemanja Radulovic, who plays violin like a rock star, play with fire in this evening’s hot concert!
