Sergei Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 2 is a work of compelling, pure beauty, and for its tone, which both sings and speaks, Lisa Batiashvili is the ideal interpreter. Alan Gilbert, chief conductor designate of the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra, also presents Richard Strauss’ Symphonia domestica in which the composer portrays his family both humorously and musically. Gilbert also presents the European premiere of Metacosmos by the Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir.
