Prokofiev’s joyous, neo-classical First Symphony takes inspiration from the symphonies of Haydn and Mozart, Prokofiev makes the form his own using contemporary harmonies and rhythms. The premiere was immediately welcomed by Western audiences.
Tchaikovsky’s later symphonies are exemplary Romantic works, and the Fifth Symphony draws in ravishing melodies, thrilling rhythms and intense emotion. Take this opportunity to hear it performed live by the musicians who know the music best.
Between these two Russian symphonies comes one of the most popular and cherished works in the violin repertoire, Mendelssohn's gorgeously romantic Violin Concerto in E minor.
