George Frideric Handel’s sparkling Music for the Royal Fireworks is on display over London’s Thames River. Zip across the channel to 1924 Paris where Igor Stravinsky will treat us to keyboard pyrotechnics in the rarely-performed Concerto for Piano and Winds. Featured pianist Hsing-ay Hsu tackles this tricky work that the composer thought no one could play but himself. Gather your bags and it’s off to 1945 Leningrad to explore the light and fun side of Dimitri Shostakovich with Symphony No. 9.
