Performance Details

Tugan Sokhiev Conductor  
Lukas Geniušas Piano 

Prokofiev Piano Concerto No. 1  
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4

The internationally revered Tugan Sokhiev leads the Orchestra in this unforgettable performance of Prokofiev and Tchaikovsky. Composed when he was still a student, Prokofiev’s First Piano Concerto wowed audiences at its 1912 premiere. Pianist Lukas Geniušas’s brilliant performance reminds us why the piece remains popular a century later. Tchaikovsky’s explosive Fourth Symphony delves into the inescapable influence of fate on humanity. Tchaikovsky concludes his exploration with optimism. Writing about the work, he notes that in spite of fate, “there still is happiness, simple, naïve happiness. Rejoice in the happiness of others — and you can still live.”
