Programme Note

In 1919 Prokofiev started work on his opera The Fiery Angel, a touching love story set against the backdrop of demonic possession. He recast much of the opera’s most impactful music into his Third Symphony. Alexander Vedernikov conducts it here after Stephen Hough plays Rachmaninov’s devilish and ever-entertaining ‘Paganini’ Variations, and the final instalment of fellow Russian Tchaikovsky’s three Shakepeare overtures.
