Ravel’s Waltz and Stravinsky’s Firebird (which received its notorious première in Paris) are two of the most alluring works of the early 20th century. The internationally celebrated Japanese conductor, Kimbo Ishii, joins forces with the Athens State Orchestra and the celebrated saxophone soloist, Theodore Kerkezos, to perform two magical French works which reveal the instrument’s full expressive and virtuosic potential.
