Stravinsky Series: Tragedy

The Stravinsky series of concerts on the South Bank ended on a high, despite the theme of Tragedy, with performances of two pieces.

Igor Stravinsky: Oedipus rex – opera/oratorio in 2 acts
Igor Stravinsky: Symphony of Psalms for chorus & orchestra

Oedipus rex was another nod to classical myth while the Symphony of Psalms was a powerful way to end the series. I’m glad I went to this season – I learned a lot about music and a lot about Stravinsky.
