Live from The Lighthouse, Poole

Presented by Martin Handley

Steven Isserlis joins the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Kirill Karabits in a programme of Prokofiev, Haydn and Beethoven

Prokofiev: Sinfonietta
Haydn: Cello Concerto no.2 in D

Steven Isserlis (cello)

Kirill Karabits (conductor)

Prokofiev's early Sinfonietta is a miracle of concision and wit, very much in the manner of the famous 'Classical' Symphony he modelled on Haydn. Steven Isserlis brings his trademark virtuosity and passion to genuine Haydn; 'genuine', that is, ever since as late as the 1950s when the manuscript was finally unearthed. There's never been any doubt about the authenticity of Beethoven's 7th Symphony, nor about its intensity or rythmic vitality.
