The penultimate concert in the Stravinsky Series focused on myths, with pieces about classical mythology. Orpheus and Apollon musagète were powerful and evocative pieces, while Perséphone, retold in collaboration with the French novelist and poet André Gide and here narrated by Pauline Cheviller, was a fascinating take on the well-known myth.
