The charming pieces for our Family Concert are inspired by tales both old and new.  Prokofiev draws on the nearly universal Cinderella story, familiar from the fairy tale hundreds of years old, while Stravinsky depicts the magical Firebird of Slavic folk legend.  In Gregory Smith’s amusing finale, it’s the compositional conundrums of the piece itself that provide the dramatic narrative!
