Summer to winter

Belief and Beyond Belief: Rituals and Seasons

7:30 PM, ​ Royal Festival Hall, London

Bridge Summer
Prokofiev Piano Concerto No. 3
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 1 (Winter Daydreams)

Michail Jurowski conductor
Beatrice Rana piano
London Philharmonic Orchestra

Winter can be as forceful in Russia as summer can be elusive in Britain. But art can transfigure the coldest December or the wettest August. Tchaikovsky's delightful First Symphony and Frank Bridge's ecstatic, rarely heard tone-poem Summer do exactly that, in music of luminous freshness and fantasy. Together they make an enchanting showcase for the distinguished, Moscow-trained conductor Michail Jurowski (Vladimir's father), and a perfect foil for the glittering wit and bittersweet melodies of Prokofiev's Third Piano Concerto. According to Gramophone, the wonderful young Italian pianist Beatrice Rana has 'more than a touch of genius'. Witness it for yourself.
