Throughout 2016 Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Theatre are celebrating the 125th anniversary of Prokofiev’s birth with possibly the greatest concentration of performances of his works ever presented. As part of this celebration and following on from their concert performance of Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet in April, Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra return to Cadogan Hall to present this complete cycle of Prokofiev symphonies.

The seven symphonies span Prokofiev’s entire career from the youthful and sparkling Classical Symphony through to the lyrical and enigmatic Seventh Symphony, completed the year before his death.

In the first two concerts they are joined by Hungarian violinist Kristóf Baráti for both of Prokofiev’s glorious Violin Concertos. For the final concert, 2015 Tchaikovsky Competition winner Alexander Ramm makes his London debut in Prokofiev’s Sinfonia Concertante.

’Valery Gergiev is a born Prokofiev interpreter’ (Guardian)

‘For those who like to hear the violin played at its sweet and acrobatic best, then Baráti is out of the top drawer…’ (Gramophone)
