Prokofiev, Sibelius, Bantock and R Strauss at the BBC Proms

‘As so often with Jurowski, the familiar was completely surprising.’

Read the reviews of the LPO's second appearance at the BBC Proms in 2013: with a programme of Bantock, Prokofiev, Sibelius and R Strauss.

Richard Strauss’s Zarathustra brought the most out of the LPO/Jurowski partnership.’

‘Pianist Anika Vavic's dexterous but soft-grained playing, wonderfully supple and beautifully nuanced, was the absolute antithesis of the virtuoso aggression we hear in most performances of the work. Jurowski conducted with infinite grace and a nice line in knowing irony.’
Tim Ashley, The Guardian

‘As so often with Jurowski, the familiar was completely surprising.’

‘Woodwind arabesques were perky and strings were passionate, but the brass stole the show. Top trumpet notes rang out effortlessly, and the lower brass packed a punch while retaining a round tone. The horns were on fine form throughout the evening, with some elegant solos coming from the principal seat.’
Katy Wright, Bachtrack
