Stravinsky's Firebird, Beethoven's Quintet in E flat

The best European concerts with Fiona Talkington. Tonight, Stravinsky's Firebird from Berlin and a wind arrangement of an early Beethoven quintet.

Fiona Talkington presents the Spanish 'Azahar' Wind Ensemble in a witty and characterful arrangement of one of Beethoven's early chamber works, and that's followed by Stravinsky's Firebird Suite from the Berlin Konzerthaus Orchestra and Iván Fischer.
