War and Peace: Mariss Jansons and his Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra bring their peerless sound to bear on Beethoven and Prokofiev.
Beethoven pianist par excellence Yefim Bronfman explores the secrets of Beethoven’s surprisingly gentle Fourth Concerto, before Jansons and his Bavarian players unleash Prokofiev’s wartime ‘symphony of the greatness of the human spirit’. With Jansons and the BRSO, it’ll glow from within.
And after all, it hardly needs re-stating: Jansons’ partnership with the BRSO is amongst the most rewarding conductor-orchestra pairings of our time. But you don’t need to have heard them before to respond to this powerful programme: a concerto of pure poetry and a symphony of iron and steel, performed by artists who make each note say something meaningful.
