Anne-Sophie Mutter needs no introduction to LPO audiences – we're honoured to have enjoyed a long musical partnership with this incomparable artist. The prospect of hearing her luminous tone and effortless command in Penderecki's impassioned Second Violin Concerto, which was written especially for her, is genuinely exciting, as is the opportunity to hear it conducted by Łukasz Borowicz, who's worked closely with the composer. Two powerful wartime testimonies begin and end the programme: Panufnik's Heroic Overture, written by a composer who witnessed the fall of Warsaw, and Prokofiev's mighty 'symphony of the greatness of the human spirit', premiered in Moscow in 1945 to the sound of gunfire.

Organised in collaboration with the Adam Mickiewicz Institute as part of the Polska Music Programme.
