Stravinsky & Two Sorts of "Russian-ness"

Tune in tonight at 7 as Alan Gilbert leads the New York Philharmonic in a concert that contrasts two kinds of "Russian-ness" in Stravinsky. "The Fairy's Kiss" is his loving tribute to Tchaikovsky; "Petroushka" bursts with Russian color and Russian folk themes.
