About This Event
Joining the BSO and Russian-born conductor Dima Slobodeniouk, esteemed German violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann is soloist in Mendelssohn's evergreen Violin Concerto. Slobodeniouk also leads Stravinsky's magical ballet score The Firebird
, the first of his trio of great ballets—also including Petrushka and The Rite of Spring
—written for Sergei Diaghilev and the Paris-based Ballets Russes. The BSO performs all three ballets this season.
