Good things come in small packages, and symphonies don’t come more delightful than Schubert’s irresistibly witty Fifth of 1816. A hundred years later Prokofiev pulled off the same trick – with added satirical bite – in his ‘Classical’ Symphony of 1916. Conductor Thomas Søndergård won’t hold back before unleashing the concentrated energy of the Two Episodes that Magnus Lindberg wrote for the London Philharmonic Orchestra in 2016. And then, to crown it all, one of the most wonderful surprises to emerge from our 2020 Vision series, as tenor Michael Weinius lends his lustrous voice to Szymanowski’s ecstatic, ravishingly beautiful Third Symphony: ‘The Song of the Night’.
