Russian epics

Vladimir Jurowski conducts

Alexey Retinsky De Profundis (UK premiere)
Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto
Prokofiev Symphony No. 5

Vladimir Jurowski conductor
Gil Shaham violin
London Philharmonic Orchestra

Moscow, 1945: and as Sergei Prokofiev waits, baton poised, to begin his Fifth Symphony, every cannon in the city thunders out in deafening salute. Forged in the fires of war and dedicated to ‘the greatness of the human spirit’, it still takes the breath away. It’s certainly a very different Russia from the soaring melodies and exuberant dances of Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto, though with the incomparable Gil Shaham as soloist, we think it’ll knock you backwards. And Vladimir Jurowski begins the concert in his own unmistakable style: with a powerful new work drenched in the Russian tradition.
