Stravinsky lures us into the thrilling musical world of The Firebird (1910) with dazzling orchestration and delirious rhythm. Written for Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes, the score made the young composer an overnight sensation. More fire emerges in Michael Daugherty’s pulsating concerto (2003), inspired by Diego Rivera’s murals of the Detroit motor industry. And there’s another popular dance score in Falla’s El amor brujo, originally written in 1915 for a leading flamenco artist.
