Bold and new
Changing Faces: Stravinsky's Journey
Stravinsky Symphony in C
Shostakovich Symphony No. 6
Vladimir Jurowski conductor
Leif Ove Andsnes piano
London Philharmonic Orchestra
By the outbreak of the Second World War, Stravinsky was a musical omnivore – and as he started a new life under the Californian sun in 1940, everything he touched came out bold, provocative and sparkling new. Vladimir Jurowski opens the programme with Stravinsky's brilliant deconstruction of the Classical symphony and then takes time to tango, before Leif Ove Andsnes breathes fresh life into Debussy's blissful early Fantaisie. Meanwhile, back in the USSR, Dmitri Shostakovich confronted an altogether bleaker reality. His extraordinary Sixth Symphony, written on the eve of the conflict, is a compelling, sometimes terrifying collision between pitch-black sorrow and sheer, uproarious farce.
This performance is being broadcast live by BBC Radio 3 and will be available online in the UK for 30 days via iPlayer.
