Introduction

Unwavering technique, a healthy regard for others, psychological sensitivity and an ethos of playing together are the cornerstones of conductor Antonello Manacorda’s work. Having studied conducting under Jorma Panula, Manacorda’s return to the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra has been eagerly anticipated.

Lieutenant Kijé was one of the earliest sound films produced in the Soviet Union. The music of Prokofiev provided the film with a humorous-romantic atmosphere with undertones of sweet melancholy.

Prokofiev's first violin concerto fell victim to the Russian Revolution. The premiere was delayed by five years and moved from Russia to Paris. In the concert audience sat violin legend Joseph Szigeti, who fell in love with the work’s captivating mixture of ““fairy-tale naiveté and daring savagery”. Szigeti added the concerto to his repertoire and made it famous on the world’s concert stages. In this evening’s concert, the concerto is taken on by magnificent Dutch violinist Liza Ferschtman.
