Prokofiev Symphony No. 5

January 11 – 12, 2024


LYADOV The Enchanted Lake
NIELSEN Concerto for Flute and Orchestra
PROKOFIEV Symphony No. 5

Prokofiev’s most popular Symphony, composed before the end of World War II, found the composer — hounded by Stalin’s Central Committee of the Communist Party — watching his back. Fiery harmonies reveal 20th century sensibilities, where big climaxes alternate with haunting melodies, brass and percussion explosions with exquisite lyricism, tragedy with triumph, sweeping you towards the gripping conclusion. DSO Principal Flute David Buck solos in Nielsen’s Concerto, showcasing not just the flute, but also in dialogue with “fellow instruments.”

Join us for a special pre-concert talk with Assistant Conductor Maurice Cohn! The talks will take place from Horchow Hall starting at 6:30pm on Thursday and Friday.
