Symphonic Soundscapes: The Music of Prokofiev and Sibelius

Wednesday 25 January 2017, 7.30pm

PROKOFIEV Symphony No.1, ‘Classical'

SIBELIUS Violin Concerto

PROKOFIEV Symphony No.3

Alexander Shelley Conductor
Chloë Hanslip Violin

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

One of the most naturally gifted of all Russian composers, Sergei Prokofiev once described his musical personality as a mixture of ‘the classical, innovative, motoric, lyrical and grotesque’. In this concert, the RPO performs two contrasting pieces and experiences two different sides of his personality, firstly beginning with his delightful Symphony No.1 – its classical and lyrical style completely different to his energetic and bustling Symphony No.3. In between the two symphonies, we welcome outstanding British violinist Chloë Hanslip to perform Sibelius’ passionate Violin Concerto.
