London Philharmonic Orchestra - Liadov, Prokofiev, Sibelius

Susanna Malkki's debut concert conducting the London Philharmonic. Liadov: From the Apocalypse. Prokofiev: Piano Concerto No 2 (soloist: Beatrice Rana). Sibelius: Symphony No 1.

Live from the Royal Festival Hall. Susanna Mälkki makes her conducting debut with the London Philharmonic and she's joined by the brilliant 22-year-old pianist Beatrice Rana. A silver medallist in the 2013 Van Cliburn competition, Beatrice Rana already has a major recording contract and is a current BBC New Generation Artist. She tackles Prokofiev's modernistic Second Concerto, one of the most technically demanding concertos in the entire repertoire. The concert opens with a fragment from the composer who famously opened a door for the young Stravinsky when he failed to deliver a score to Diaghilev and his fledgling Ballets russes.
