Alexander Nevsky - Under The Mongol Yoke, Sergei Prokofiev

Muti Conducts Prokofiev and Scriabin

Jan22
8:00 PM
Prokofiev, Scriabin
Thursday, January 22, 2015

Riccardo Muti conducts works by two Russian composers for whom he has a remarkable affinity. Scriabin’s First Symphony is a glorious six-movement work that culminates in a triumphant chorus, yet it also holds much tender lyricism. Prokofiev’s cantata Alexander Nevsky, by contrast, is full of fire and steel, its imaginative orchestration and rousing choruses evoking Russia’s medieval victory over invading Teutonic knights.
