We invite you to enjoy an enhanced live listening experience with OctavaOne of the most naturally gifted of all Russian composers, Sergei Prokofiev once described his musical personality as a mixture of ‘the classical, innovative, motoric, lyrical and grotesque’. In this concert, the RPO performs two contrasting pieces and experiences two different sides of his personality, firstly beginning with his delightful Symphony No.1 – its classical and lyrical style completely different to his energetic and bustling Symphony No.3. In between the two symphonies, we welcome outstanding British violinist Chloë Hanslip to perform Sibelius’ passionate Violin Concerto.
