The Divine Poem

Jurowski conducts Scriabin’s Third Symphony

7:30 PM, ​ Royal Festival Hall, London

Oliver Knussen Scriabin Settings
Sibelius Violin Concerto
Scriabin Symphony No. 3 (The Divine Poem)

Vladimir Jurowski conductor
Leonidas Kavakos violin
London Philharmonic Orchestra

As Alexander Scriabin started work on his Third Symphony in 1904, his outlandish philosophical and religious world views began to sharpen up. In this piece, the composer set out to depict a Nietzschean belief in the liberation of the human spirit through three extraordinary musical chapters: a spasmodic, conflict-strewn opening Allegro, a voluptuous, melodic song and a final ‘divine game’ which, through its mood of radiant vitality, drives the Symphony home with unequivocal brilliance. Scriabin’s ‘Divine Poem’ is the perfect counterpoint to the enigmatic Violin Concerto by Sibelius, played here by a violinist who made his name with exceptional performances of the piece, Leonidas Kavakos.

Concert generously supported by Victoria Robey OBE.
