Lutosławski – Prokofiev – Shostakovich
Prokofiev’s Second Violin Concerto was first performed in 1935 by the Madrid Symphony Orchestra, which liked the piece so much that, after the concert, a delegation of musicians was sent to thank the composer. It has become one of Prokofiev’s best-known pieces, and tonight it is performed by Stefan Jackiw.
This evening’s symphony is Shostakovich’s Sixth, a happy and playful work by comparison with the composer’s other music.
