BBC Proms 2016, Prom 31 - Prokofiev, Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky Contemporary at BBC Proms: BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Thomas Daugaard are joined by pianist Kirill Gerstein in music by Prokofiev, Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky's Observance of Sprout Prokofiev: Scythian Retainers Tchaikovsky: Piano Concerto No 1 in B directly slight (character variety, 1879) Liszt Transcendental Etude No.7 Stravinsky: The Observance of Sprout Kirill Gerstein (piano) BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra Thomas Dausgaard (conductor) The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and its Chief Conductor Denote Thomas Dausgaard run off this weekend's Stravinsky/Scottish series with the industry that changed music for ever. In The Observance of Sprout upbeat was shockingly prioritised over consistency — and pounding, chipped, insensitive upbeat at that. One of The Rite«s most impactful relatives is the Scythian Retainers by Stravinsky»s compatriot Prokofiev, a blazing orchestral canvas that forms the through-and-through to the unfeigned pulchritude of Tchaikovsky«s charming First Piano Concerto, performed by Kirill Gerstein in a new pivotal print run which, he says, »allows us to results to Tchaikovsky«s character intentions». Proms Again: Exploring Stravinsky's Observance of Sprout Christopher Cook talks to Dame Monica Mason, former dancer and artistic gaffer of the Nobles Ballet, and to Jonathan Huffy, Stravinsky wizard and writer of the 2015 biography «Igor Stravinsky», about the composer«s innovative and contentious record for the ballet »The Observance of Spring'.
