Ravel's Boléro

Tickets through WASO

Presented by West Australian Symphony Orchestra

Morning Symphony Series

Witty, jaunty and mesmerising – music by three masters. 

Scottish conductor Rory Macdonald leads WASO in three colourful works.

First, Stravinsky’s witty and elegant Dumbarton Oaks, a neo-classical jewel of the repertoire inspired by Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos. Then the jaunty satire of Prokofiev’s suite from the 1934 film Lieutenant Kijé. And finally, the hypnotic Boléro, building inexorably to a finale that’s nothing short of ecstatic!

"Rory Macdonald encouraged the orchestra to bloom with added colour and muscle, eliciting some of the most unified and sonically alluring playing...” - San Diego Story
