Sinfonieorchester Basel — Sacre

Stadtcasino Basel

Igor Stravinsky was continuously inspired by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's music and described him as an “extraordinary rhythmist.” The way Mozart “grooves” is already audible in the introduction to his Concerto for Two Pianos, but when the two sisters Katia and Marielle Labèque exchange the motifs of the final movement like imagined balls in this concert with the Sinfonieorchester Basel, the music takes off and you hear who the gods love.
Electrifying in a completely different, wild and archaic way are the rhythms in Stravinsky's “Sacre du Printemps,” which has evolved from a Parisian scandal piece to an “evergreen” in the concert halls.
Tickets are CHF 35-105 for adults and half price for students.
