Relive one of the highlights of our April 2016 tour later this month, as Mezzo broadcasts the Moscow concert of our ‘Baltic Sea Landscapes’ visit around the Baltic Sea states
The concert took place on 23 April 2016 in the Moscow’s Tchaikovsky Hall, as a celebration of the 125th anniversary of the birth of Sergei Prokofiev. It featured renowned Prokofiev exponent Alexander Toradze performing the composer’s Third Piano Concerto, and the First Symphony, under the baton of Kristjan Järvi. The rest of the programme reflected the orchestra’s championing of the environment: Arvo Pärt’s Swansong, Gediminas Gelgotas’s Mountains. Waters. (Freedom), and Igor Stravinsky’s The Firebird.
This is the third time Mezzo has broadcast our concerts – it previously transmitted BYP’s ‘Live from the Berlin Philharmonie’ from a January 2014 concert, and its Paris debut, from March 2015. The French television station launched in 1992, and now transmits across 44 countries to 18 million subscribers.
