Tchaikovsky and Dvořák
Tom Gauterin conductor
Stefan Ciric piano
Prokofiev Classical Symphony, Op 25
Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No 1, Op 23
Dvořák Symphony No 9 ‘from the New World’
Fresh from his debut with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Stefan Ciric joins BCP for the greatest piano warhorse of all: Tchaikovsky’s glorious 1st Piano Concerto. Preceded by Prokofiev’s witty ‘Classical’ symphony, this all-Russian first half is followed by Dvorak’s ‘New World’ symphony, written during his years in America and powerfully combining nostalgia with a characteristic flow of glorious melodies. For many, the Largo will be forever associated with a certain brand of brown bread. A programme full of gloriously hummable melodies, this concert is guaranteed to leave you smiling!
