La mer, Firebird, & Vixen in Ostrava & Zlin 2011

It was a great pleasure to be invited for return engagements with both the Janacek
Philharmonic Ostrava and the Bohuslav Martinu Philharmonic in Zlin.

We performed Igor Stravinsky's Firebird, Leos Janacek's The Cunning Little Vix
en, & Claude Debussy's La mer in educational concerts entitled "Colors of the Orchestra".

Our concerts also included images from Russian paintings of the Firebird story, the original drawings which inspired Rudolf Tesnohlidek in creating the tale of the Cunning Little Vixen, and a film with images of the sea!

The film of the sea was created by Gilda Tabarez, and every image was planned to match the mood of Debussy's music. It was a true thrill and adventure to synchronize the orchestra with the film, and I was extremely satisfied with both the musicians and the talented work of Gilda! You may view her film here:
