Inspired By The Classics
Featuring Prokofiev’s First Symphony
Edvard Tchivzhel, conductor
R. Strauss: Divertimento (on Themes of Couperin)
Prokofiev: Symphony No. 1, D major (Classical Symphony, Op. 25)
Tchaikovsky: Suite No. 1, Op. 43, D minor
These three great composers of the 19th and 20th centuries pay tribute to their classical predecessors with these witty, sparkling compositions, masterfully imitating the Baroque style. Yet, you’ll still notice distinct flavors of German expressionism, sweet nostalgia of Russian romanticism, and some “spices” of 20th century modernism.
