Grieg Holberg Suite
Prokofiev Symphony No.1 'Classical'
Beethoven Symphony No.7
Vladimir Ashkenazy Conductor
Throughout history, composers have spun magic around traditional dance forms. In his ‘suite in the olden style’, Grieg effectively fitted new springs to ancient models. The same propulsion abounds in Prokofiev’s mischievous re-think of a Haydn-era symphony, while Beethoven himself took the popular dances of his day and whipped them into a swirling frenzy.

We’re thrilled to welcome back our Patron Vladimir Ashkenazy, conducting Southbank Sinfonia for the first time since 2015.
