Simon Hoban introduces a concert from the Warwick Arts Centre given by the CBSO and Andris Nelsons with music by Prokofiev, Mozart and Brahms.
Prokofiev - Classical Symphony
Mozart - Piano Concerto No.27, K 595
Brahms - Symphony No. 4
Lars Vogt - Piano
City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra
Andris Nelsons - Conductor
From the rocketing energy and playful humour of Prokofiev's firecracker of a First Symphony, to the Shakespearean tragedy of Brahms' Fourth, this concert spans the whole range of symphonic writing. And Mozart's beautiful last piano concerto, played by Lars Vogt, is almost a mini-opera for piano and orchestra.
Followed by a Music on the Brink Modernist Moment. Tom Service introduces two 1914 songs by Frank Bridge: Where She Lies asleep; Love went a-riding.
