ABOUT THIS EVENT:
Prokofiev wrote this soaring concerto in 1935, as he was returning to Russia after decades in the West. Hear this classic played by the contemporary master, violinist Gil Shaham.
Bringing this program to a close is Stravinsky’s kaleidoscopic ballet music that tells of the comic-sad loves and jealousies of three Russian puppets: the trickster Petrushka (called “Punch” in England; “Pulcinella” in Italy), the ever-elegant Ballerina, and the dashing Moor — as well as the Magician/Charlatan who brings them to life at the Shrovetide Fair.
Mussorgsky: Night on Bald Mountain
Prokofiev: Concerto for Violin no 2 in G minor, Op. 63
