Classics: Sibelius & Prokofiev
Conductor Ruth Reinhardt debuts with the LO in Sibelius’s majestic Second Symphony – a masterwork reflecting the warmth and ease of a composer sojourning in a sun-drenched town in Northern Italy. Virtuoso violinist Paul Huang also returns to brandish the dazzling pyrotechnics of Prokofiev’s Second Violin Concerto, whose dark outer movements brim with menace.
