The MPO Principal Conductor leads the orchestra in a programme of Russian works. Scriabin’s symphony was defined as “the new Bible” by Vassily Safonoff, at the time conductor of the New York Philharmonic. Ingeniously, the composer developed the sombre initial theme into a triumphant finale hymn, establishing a cyclic link between the movements.
The violin concerto by Prokofiev delights audiences with its romantic lyricism without shying away from the characteristic virtuoso traits, manifesting his enfant terrible personality.
Russian Sounds conducted by the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra will be held at Teatru Manoel on the 15th February at 7.30pm. Tickets can be purchased through the Teatru Manoel’s website www.teatrumanoel.com.mt or from Teatru Manoel’s box office.
