Concert Description

Guest maestro Hannu Lintu conducts Stravinsky's one-act ballet, "The Fairy's Kiss" — the composer's balletic homage to Tchaikovsky — and Sibelius' most treasured Second Symphony. Dynamic Finnish violinist Elina Vähälä makes an exciting return to Detroit following her captivating 2013 debut (Corigliano's "The Red Violin").
