Winter can be as forceful in Russia as summer can be elusive in Britain. But art can transfigure the coldest December or the wettest August. Tchaikovsky's delightful First Symphony and Frank Bridge's ecstatic, rarely heard tone-poem Summer do exactly that, in music of luminous freshness and fantasy. Together they make an enchanting showcase for the distinguished, Moscow-trained conductor Michail Jurowski (Vladimir's father), and a perfect foil for the glittering wit and bittersweet melodies of Prokofiev's Third Piano Concerto. According to Gramophone, the wonderful young Italian pianist Beatrice Rana has 'more than a touch of genius'. Witness it for yourself.
