Festival Details - "London Philharmonic Orchestra: Petrushka and Friends"...

Part of Classical Season

The London Philharmonic Orchestra and Vladimir Jurowski perform Stravinsky's Petrushka in the third concert of their exploration of the legendary Russian composer and his contemporaries.

On a spring day in Old Russia, a crowd of fairgoers watches a puppet show. Petrushka loves the Ballerina. The Ballerina prefers the Moor. Tragedy looms, but don’t worry: puppets don’t have hearts . . . do they?

Stravinsky’s Petrushka paints Russian tradition in colours as bright as a piece of folk-art – and as sinister as the new century.

Violinist Ray Chen brings all his charisma and wizardry to Prokofiev’s super-sophisticated fairy tale of a First Violin Concerto, and Vladimir Jurowski raises the curtain with an affectionate glance backwards: three fantastic miniatures
by the man who was originally meant to write The Firebird, Stravinsky’s old teacher Anatoly Liadov.
