BORODIN Prince Igor Overture

PROKOFIEV Piano Concerto No.3

TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No.1, 'Winter Daydreams'

An enchanting programme of Russian masterworks overflowing with inventive themes and glittering sonorities. Borodin was a composer of colourful orchestration and irresistible melodies. The Overture to his opera Prince Igor begins in a mysterious vein, but is soon effervescing with excitement. Prokofiev began sketching his Third Piano Concerto in 1917, completing it in Brittany in 1921. Full of evocative textures, the Concerto develops a relationship between piano and orchestra that encompasses lively dialogue and profound intimacy. In his First Symphony, 'Winter Daydreams', Tchaikovsky vividly conjures up blustery and atmospheric scenes with his characteristic dramatic flair.
