Once upon a time in St Petersburg … Every revolution has its forebears, and Stravinsky learned his craft amidst the glittering sunset of Imperial Russia. His teachers, Rimsky-Korsakov and Glazunov, created musical worlds that glowed with magic and melancholy, and tonight the superb Hungarian virtuoso Kristóf Baráti brings his special brand of passion to one of the undisputed classics of that so-called 'Silver Age': Glazunov's sweet and songful Violin Concerto. Then Vladimir Jurowski conducts Stravinsky’s own graduation piece: the youthful, exuberantly romantic First Symphony that lit the fuse to one of the most explosive careers in 20th-century music.
