Classical Season 2019/20 | RNS at Home
with Post-Concert Spotlight Performance
Julian Rachlin conductor/violin
Royal Northern Sinfonia
Prokofiev Violin Concerto No.2
Prokofiev Classical Symphony
Mozart Symphony No.1
Mozart Symphony No.41 ‘Jupiter’
Amid the turmoil of the Russian Revolution, the young Prokofiev sat down to imagine the music Mozart or Haydn might have written if they’d been alive in the 20th century. Whip-smart and uproarious, his Classical Symphony is the result – the centre of a concert in which violinist-extraordinaire Julian Rachlin takes a marvellously entertaining tightrope walk between two centuries. Prokofiev’s zingy Second Violin Concerto is every bit as tuneful and irreverent as his symphony, but even that is no match for Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and tonight Rachlin conducts both his startlingly brilliant (for an eight-year old!) first symphony, and his sublimely inspired last.
