Baba Yaga

Musical fairytale based on the Russian eponym

Moussorgsky : Baba Yaga (arrangement : Julian Yu)
Stravinsy : Danses concertantes (excerpts)
Maëlle Mietton, texts

“The sorcerous Ildurne, invited by the orchestra to speak to us of the famous Baba Yaga, recounts the story as a counterpoint to Stravinsky’s “Danses concertantes”. This distinctive music marvelously depicts the adventures of the little heroine, Maïna, who tries to free herself from the clutches of the sorcerous.”
