We welcome back the St. Petersburg Philharmonic under long-standing Music Director, Yuri Temirkanov. Prokofiev’s reputation as a challenging composer is belied by the popularity of works like his Classical Symphony which recaptures the playful spirit of Haydn. His first piano concerto, by comparison, is a daring student work, concise and virtuosic. To close, Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony passes from darkness to light with characteristic passion and intensity.
