Lyrical and uncompromising, with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, conductor Pekka Kuusisto and violinist Ava Bahari.
This evening’s programme features three works written in the 1930s, with elusive love as the common theme, under the leadership of Pekka Kuusisto. The audience is treated to a meeting of extremes – Korngold’s lyrically elegant Suite from Anthony Adverse, and Schönberg’s challenging and uncompromising Violin Concerto – with the Swedish rising star Ava Bahari.
The evening is rounded off with the soft rhythms that have made Prokofiev’s Romeo and Julia such an immortal work. As a composer, Prokofiev was driven entirely by his artistic vision. After the Russian Revolution, he left the country and lived in exile in the United States and France – not for political reasons but to gain peace of mind. Prokofiev was often criticized in his homeland for his “Western style” and at the same time received the Stalin Prize several times. Underneath all these contradictions is a distinctive style and an artistic drive that reaches through history.
So does film music from Anthony Adverse sound.
