War and Peace


    Prokofiev Selection from Semyon Kotko (20’)
    Mussorgsky (arr. Denisov) Songs and Dances of Death (19’)
    Lyatoshynsky Symphony No. 3 (46’)


  • Vladimir Jurowski conductor
  • Matthew Rose bass

Vladimir Jurowski presents a programme of uncompromising emotional power.

‘Peace Shall Defeat War’ wrote Boris Lyatoshynsky on the score of his Third Symphony, and the message of this great 20th-century Ukrainian composer has never felt more urgent or compelling. LPO Conductor Emeritus Vladimir Jurowski believes passionately that it needs to be heard, and you’ll be gripped by its epic sweep and uncompromising emotional power. Jurowski has paired it with music from Prokofiev’s operatic tale of Ukrainian struggle, and Mussorgsky’s pitch-black, darkly comic songs – perfect for a singer as dramatic, and as characterful, as the British bass Matthew Rose.
