Symphonic Soundscapes - The Music of Prokofiev and Sibelius

 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’.

Tonight the RPO performs two contrasting pieces and experience two different sides of his personality. Firstly beginning with his delightful Symphony No. 1, Classical, its classical and lyrical style is 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.
