Sinfonia da requiem
ProkofIEV
Symphony No. 5
written during world war II, britten’s Sinfonia da requiem is
a powerful cry for peace, reaching such tension in the central
scherzo that the music seems to explode into angry fragments,
from the cooling shards of which arises its serene, hope-filled
finale. Prokofiev’s breathtaking Fifth Symphony, composed
with an Allied victory over Nazi Germany in sight, evokes a
waking giant and ends with an exhilarating finale.

Vladimir Feltsman “plays the piano as though he is speaking
through it…Rarely do I spend so much time at the edge of my
seat” (Philadelphia Inquirer). Prokofiev’s turbulent, percussive
Sixth Sonata will showcase the magnetic Russian pianist’s deft
touch and expansive sonority.

Symphony No. 5
The youthful benjamin britten boldly announced his arrival
in America with his brilliant Violin Concerto, a magnificent
and hope-filled display of virtuosity. Shostakovich’s powerfully
evocative Fifth Symphony gave voice to the Russian people in
their struggle against Soviet tyranny, its elegiac third movement
moving audiences to tears.
