Marin Alsop (conductor)

Marin Alsop, a protégée of Leonard Bernstein, returns to the Proms with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra for a politically charged climax to our Bernstein weekend. The concert culminates in Shostakovich’s ambiguous Fifth Symphony, whose triumphant finale can be heard either as political protest or capitulation to Stalin’s Soviet regime. Pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet joins the orchestra for Bernstein’s ‘The Age of Anxiety’ – a musical quest for faith in a broken, post-war world – and the evening opens with the boisterous Slava!, a ‘political overture’ dedicated to cellist Mstislav Rostropovich.
