Principal Conductor Vladimir Jurowski offers a rare opportunity to hear Myaskovsky's Symphony 6, a moving choral work of Mahlerian proportions, which alludes to the distressing circumstances surrounding the death of his aunt. Myaskovksy was great friends with Prokofiev throughout his life, and it is the latter composer's Symphony-Concerto, a large scale work for cello and orchestra, that opens the evening concert.
