Welcome back to Conductor Laureate Andrew Litton with a programme near to his heart.
As assistant to Rostropovich in his early years, Litton had an unusually rich exposure to the Russian symphonic tradition he had always loved.
Here he presents a ”greatest hits” selection: the fireworks of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, the same composer’s virtuosic violin concerto performed by concertmaster Melina Mandozzi, and Prokofiev’s ground-breaking 3rd Symphony (Prokofiev himself wrote: ”I believe that in this symphony I have succeeded in achieving a greater depth of musical idiom.”)
