Prokofiev Violin Concerto No. 1, 23′
Schubert Symphony No 4 (Tragic), 30′
​You might have already heard about the CBSO’s recordings of Schubert’s symphonies, conducted by Edward Gardner – because the critics have loved them. “Incredibly beautiful” said BBC Music Magazine. Gramophone went even further: “the music darts and skips with youthful abandon”. Now Birmingham gets to experience it live, as Gardner and the orchestra launch themselves headfirst into the stormy emotions and irresistible melodies of Schubert’s Fourth (and most impetuous) symphony. First, though, Master of the Queen’s Music and former CBSO Associate Composer Judith Weir pays colourful homage to the paintings of Paul Klee, and violinist Alina Ibragimova weaves her spell in Prokofiev’s fairytale First Violin Concerto. Sheer sonic enchantment.
