Due to the ongoing situation with Covid, we have taken the decision to postpone this online streamed concert, 'Prokofiev & Stravinsky' and are currently exploring options to reschedule it later in the year. We will update this page and the event information just as soon as possible.
Maxim Emelyanychev conducts two brilliant works by Prokofiev and Stravinsky which take very modern views on music of the past.
Prokofiev imagined what Haydn might write if he were alive in the 20th century in his brief but utterly charming Classical Symphony, while Stravinsky threw all his own unmistakable rhythms and piquant harmonies at Pergolesi (or so he thought) in his captivating Pulcinella, as comic as it is touching.
Filmed at the Festival Theatre, Edinburgh, this concert will be broadcast via SCO’s YouTube and Facebook channels.
