28 Aug 2015

Barcode: 0825646131365

Composer: Alexander Glazunov, Sergei Prokofiev
Other participants: Mstislav Rostropovich, National Symphony Orchestra

Three highly contrasted works from 20th century Russia. Anne-Sophie Mutter is the soloist in Glazunov’s richly lyrical violin concerto, first performed in 1905, and in Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No 1, dating from the time of the Revolution and a work of edgy beauty. They are complemented by Rodion Shchedrin’s majestic Stihira, inspired by the Orthodox liturgy music and composed in 1987 for Mstislav Rostropovich and the National Symphony Orchestra of Washington, D.C.
