Deeply thought out works: sparkling Prokofiev's Piano Concerto or Scriabin's Prometheus

Dear guest of the Prague Symphony Orchestra, Andrej Borejko, brings to Prague programs that are always deeply thought out, in which things sparkle and shine. This time literally, because Scriabin works directly with light in his Prometheus. Only modern light design can properly illuminate the visionary work from 1911. Prokofiev's Piano Concerto is similarly sparkling, especially when performed by Yulianna Avdeeva, who has performed several times in seasons; this time, however, for the first time with the Prague Symphony Orchestra. The darker counterpoint of Russian opuses, a kind of conscience and testimony of the 20th century, is represented by the works of Mieczysław Karłowicz and Miloslav Kabeláč. Program: 

  • MIECZYSŁAW KARŁOWICZ
    A Sorrowful Tale Op. 13
  • SERGEI PROKOFIEV
    Piano Concerto No. 2 in G minor Op. 16
  • MILOSLAV KABELÁČ
    The Mystery of Time, passacaglia for large orchestra Op. 31
  • ALEXANDER SCRIABIN
    Prometheus: The Poem of Fire, symphonic poem Op. 60
