Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto
Saturday, October 31st, 8:00 PM
Vladimir Jurowski Conductor
Sergey Khachatryan Violin
Stravinsky Scherzo fantastique
Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto
Prokofiev Symphony No. 4 (1947 revision)
Energetic Armenian-born violinist Sergey Khachatryan joins the Orchestra for an all-Russian program that highlights Tchaikovsky's summery Violin Concerto. At the podium for his fourth Philadelphia Orchestra visit is Moscow native Vladimir Jurowski, principal conductor of the London Philharmonic and music director of the Glyndebourne Festival Opera. Jurowski opens the concert with Stravinsky's flamboyant early Scherzo fantastique, written when the 24-year-old composer was still under the tutelage of Rimsky-Korsakov, and closes with Prokofiev's rarely heard Fourth Symphony from 1930, in its sumptuous expanded version of 1947.
