Valery Gergiev conducts the London Symphony Orchestra in a concert that justaposes the UK premiere of Sofia Gubaidulina’s The Rider on the White Horse with Ravel’s celebrated orchestration of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition.
Works by Mussorgsky’s contemporary Alexander Borodin and by Alexander Glazunov, whose career as composer and conductor began in Tsarist Russia and ended in exile in Paris, add further colour to a programme steeped in history. Daniil Trifonov makes his Proms debut in Glazunov’s rarely heard Piano Concerto No 2, premiered in the first concert in Petrograd (St Petersburg) after the 1917 Revolution.
