Prokofiev Violin Concerto No 1 22'
Prokofiev Cantata for the 20th Anniversary of the October Revolution 43'
The dreamy lyricism of Prokofiev’s First Violin Concerto from 1917 is said to have been inspired by the “wild, virginal and beautiful scenery” of the Ural mountains. Twenty years later, his Cantata for the 20th Anniversary of the Revolution was kept hidden in a drawer until the death of Stalin. This seldom performed work is written for gargantuan choral and orchestral forces and includes an accordion band, alarm bells, siren and speaker.
