The London Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2020 Vision takes in music from 1817, 1917 and 2017, broadcast online from the Royal Festival Hall.
‘Alexander Gavrylyuk is, easily, the most compelling pianist of his generation’, wrote one critic after this exceptional Ukrainian pianist appeared at the 2017 BBC Proms – ‘a monumental master … unassuming and completely dedicated to his art.’
So imagine the thrill when he joins Thomas Søndergård in Prokofiev’s ferocious Third Piano Concerto: by turns brilliant, anarchic and breathtakingly beautiful.
It’s a fiery climax to a concert that lines up Schubert’s ebullient Sixth Symphony of 1817, Ravel’s poignant homage to fallen friends in 1917, and Jonathan Dove’s ravishing sacred mini-masterpiece Vadam et circuibo civitatem: timeless wonder, created in 2017.
