The Hartford Symphony Orchestra will close the 2009-2010 Masterworks Series with a program of “Orchestral Fireworks!” including Igor Stravinsky’s bewitching "Firebird Suite" Thursday, May 20 through Saturday, May 22 at 8 pm and Sunday, May 23 at 3 pm in the Belding Theater at the Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts.

The program will feature violinist Karina Canellakis in a world premiere performance of a new arrangement of Connecticut composer Charles Ives’ "Violin Sonatas," as arranged for orchestra by Music Director Edward Cumming. In addition, Canellakis will perform Saint-Saëns blistering "Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso for Violin and Orchestra."

Opening the program will be a short musical appetizer by Bohuslav Martinu entitled "La Revue de Cuisine" (The Kitchen Review). Featuring only one clarinet, bassoon, trumpet, piano, violin, and cello, this quirky ballet suite portrays the imaginary drama of a group of kitchen utensils.

Tickets are $30-$70; $10 with a student ID and are available in person Monday through Friday 10 am t 5 pm at Hartford Symphony Orchestra Ticket Services, 99 Pratt St., Suite 500, Hartford, by calling 860-244-2999, or online at http://www.hartfordsymphony.org/.
