Symphony No. 1 in D Major, Classical
Piano Concerto No. 1 in D-flat Major*
Symphony No. 9, From the New World
One of the brightest lights on the Finnish classical music scene, Juho Pohjonen makes his VSO debut performing Prokofiev’s flat-out exciting Piano Concerto No. 1 with acclaimed conductor Constantin Trinks. Two different sides of Prokofiev are on display in this concert, as we also hear his throwback to the Classical style of composition. Dvořák’s New World Symphony is one of the best-known and most-loved symphonies ever written, a delicious soundscape of melodies, orchestral colours and musical styles.
