Prokofiev & Dvorák

Under the baton of Venezuelan conductor Rafael Payare the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra performs lyrical and folk music inspired pieces. Violin soloist is Emmanuel Tjeknavorian.

Under the baton of Venezuelan conductor Rafael Payare, the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra performs lyrical and folk music inspired pieces. Violin soloist is the exceptionallty talented Armenian-Austrian Emmanuel Tjeknavorian, who won the Sibelius competition in 2015 (as it happens, a recording of the Sibelius concerto is just out now). He was a selected Rising Star for the season 2017/18, when he debuted at the Konserthuset.

The first violin concerto by Sergey Prokofiv was finished in the summer of 1917, but was first perfomed only in 1923 in Paris when Prokofiev had left Russia due to political turmoil. At times this music has been compared to Mendelssohn’s, because of its melodic romanticism and light-hearted character; this is a lyrical concerto and milder in its expressiveness than usually with Prokofiev.

Antonín Dvorák is perhaps most known for his cello concerto and the ninth symphony, ”From the New World”, but the other eight symphonies are masterfully conceived as well. Dvorák had enormous international successes in his life and crowned his career with an appointment as a professor of composition in New York. Before his departure to the New World, America, he composed his life-affirming Eighth Symphony, which emerged during long walks through forests and fields. This nature-inspired music is filled with joy and effervescent energy.
