Tugan Sokhiev and Yefim Bronfman perform Beethoven
Tugan Sokhiev, chief conductor of the Bolshoi Theatre, conducts two of the most popular works of the Russian repertoire at this concert, which opens with Prokofiev’s ardent Symphony No. 1, inspired by the First Viennese School. In contrast, Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition depicts Russian scenes and legends with incomparable atmospheric and musical intensity. The soloist in Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3 is Yefim Bronfman.
