David Robertson / Sydney Symphony Orchestra - The Firebird (Original 1910 version) - Introduction
American conductor David Robertson made his Australian debut with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in 2003 and soon became a regular visitor to the orchestra, with projects such as The Colour of Time, a conceptual multimedia concert; the Australian premiere of John Adams' Doctor Atomic Symphony; and concert performances of The Flying Dutchman with video projections. He began his five-year tenure as Chief Conductor of the SSO in 2014, and highlights of his inaugural season included a semi-staged presentation of Elektra and a seven-city tour of China.

He is a compelling and passionate communicator whose stimulating programs and music-making have captivated audiences and musicians. Last year he launched his tenth season as Music Director of the St Louis Symphony.

Other titled posts have included Principal Guest Conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Music Director of the Orchestre National de Lyon and resident conductor of the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra.

A recognised expert in 20th and 21st century music, he has also been Music Director of the Ensemble Intercontemporain in Paris (where composer and conductor Pierre Boulez was an early supporter) and his discography includes music by such composers as Adams, Bartók, Boulez, Carter, Ginastera, Milhaud and Reich.

About this track...

Shifting between supernatural exoticism and folk simplicity, the track's various musical elements effectively conjure images of Kastchei’s realm and Prince Ivan's encounter with the mythical Firebird.
