ABOUT THE CONCERT
Prokofiev’s fifth symphony is a mature composition, written 14 years after his previous symphonic work. This ode to freedom and happiness was completed during World War II and features a joy that prevails and explodes like fireworks under the baton of Kensho Watanabe.
Just as fiery, Latvian composer Garūta’s concerto is a little-known gem that will be performed by Quebec-born, London-based pianist Élisabeth Pion. But the Sorcerer’s Apprentice will cast a spell to get the first sparks flying. This piece was written by Dukas, Garūta’s teacher.
