PROKOFIEV SYMPHONY NO. 5
Jaap van Zweden
conductor
When World War II began, the Soviet regime needed artists to inspire
and lead. Prokofiev played his part, and as the tide of war turned in
1944, he created a paradoxical and melodious masterpiece. Join Civic
and Jaap van Zweden for a special installment of Beyond the Score.
This program is part of the CSO’s Truth to Power Festival.
