United Kingdom

Conductor - Dmitry Yablonsky
Piano - Farhad Badalbeyli
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra


Written in just three days, Shostakovichís Festive Overture is a dazzling tour de force, demanding breathtaking agility from the whole orchestra. Also written in haste, the Karelia Suite by Sibelius is one of his most popular works, its shimmering textures and bold melodies celebrating the composerís native Finland. Prokofievís dynamic and colourful First Piano Concerto was written when he was a student; Prokofiev premiered the Concerto himself, considering it to be his first mature work. This programme culminates in the grandeur of Mussorgskyís Pictures at an Exhibition orchestrated by Ravel, each movement vividly conjuring up a different scene.
