Vilnis ŠMĪDBERGS Concerto for Orchestra (second revision)
Sergei PROKOFIEV Piano Concerto no. 3
Johannes BRAHMS Symphony no. 1
The LNSO includes an almost new work in the season closing concert programme, in honour of Vilnis Šmīdbergs’ June anniversary – a revamped, polished Concerto for Orchestra to remind us of the Sturm und Drang of its outstanding author’s youth. The LNSO is always happy to receive Nicholas Angelich, and we are particularly looking forward to hearing Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto no. 3. The crown of the programme is Brahms’s monumental Symphony no. 1 that always prompts us to seek anew and, who knows, find the key to the soul of the secluded, mysterious genius.
