Prokofiev and Borodin

Wednesday 11 June 2025, 7.30pm
Cadogan Hall

Britten Peter Grimes: Four Sea Interludes
Prokofiev Piano Concerto No.3
Victoria Borisova-Ollas Open Ground
Borodin Prince Igor: Polovtsian Dances

Gemma New Conductor
Daniel Ciobanu Piano

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

The wind rises, and waves smash against the North Sea coast of England. The earth shakes, as the very ground beneath our feet threatens to give way. And, in 19th-century Russia, a chemist with a gift for music dreams of ancient times and exotic tribes and creates sheer sonic alchemy. Music can show us the world in magical new ways, and as conductor Gemma New brings the RPO’s season to a close, she’s chosen four pieces that stir the imagination even while they thrill the senses. Britten’s seascapes, Borodin’s oriental fantasies and Victoria Borisova-Ollas’ tribute to the imagination of Salman Rushdie will make a vivid setting for the playfulness and wit of Prokofiev’s brilliant Third Piano Concerto – played by young pianist Daniel Ciobanu for whom every performance is a new adventure.

Large print versions and digital formats of the programme for this concert are available on request for customers with accessibility requirements. Please email your request to Doran Crowhurst at least one full week before the performance.
