This piece is based on the story of The Firebird. There are many different versions of the firebird story, but it was most famously retold in Stravinsky's ballet of the same name. Alexis Kandra's parents were classical musicians, so she grew up listening to music and reading the stories of classical ballets. The Firebird was always one of her favorites.
