The San Antonio Symphony will present Masks, featuring Aram Khachaturian's Masquerade Suite, Béla Bartók's Violin Concerto No. 1, and Igor Stravinsky's The Firebird. Violinist Eric Gratz will be a featured performer.

The Firebird Ballet catapulted the 28-year-old Igor Stravinsky into international fame in 1910. Stravinsky blended Russian folk traditions and brilliant orchestral colors with his unique style of rhythmic irregularity.

The first half of this concert features Bartók’s first violin concerto, written two years before The Firebird. The work wasn’t performed until after his death. It was inspired by an infatuation he had for a younger woman. The concert begins with Khachaturian’s incidental music for a play that is best known for its waltz theme.
