The reconstruction of Rotterdam began on 18 May 1940. That date, celebrated annually since 1947 as Opbouwdag, acquires extra allure in 2018 with this concert. In an extended version, Jeths’s penetrating Conductus gets its première as a diptych of destruction and resurrection. The climax of the concert is Stravinsky’s dazzling Firebird, which rises as a phoenix from the ashes: a glorious and meaningful way to end the evening.
