Why See Seattle Symphony - Prokofiev Symphony No. 7?
An enchanting evening with the Seattle Symphony
The Seattle Symphony celebrate Prokofiev's last major work in this special evening of charming, and enchanting music. The symphony will be joined by Alesky Semenenko for Jean Sibelius' Nordic Violin Concerto, with Paul Dukas' internationally beloved Sorcerer's Apprentice kicking off the evening of childhood inspired music.
Orignally composed for a Children's radio programme, Prokofiev's Symphony No. 7 is a piece of beautiful simplicity. Completed in 1952 the symphony marks the end of Prokofiev's great works as he died a year later. The original composition was quite melancholic in sound, but after some persuading (and a possible 100,000 rubles in prize money) Prokofiev decided to lighten the mood, creating a symphony of childlike wonder.
Opening night: 14 February 2019
