Prokofiev // Piano Concerto No. 2 in G Minor Listen Now
Schubert // Symphony No. 9 in C Major, “The Great” Listen Now

Lahav Shani, winner of the Gustav Mahler International Conducting Competition, leads Schubert’s Great C Major Symphony, which represents the composer's orchestral writing at its finest. The BSO is joined by Prokofiev specialist Nikolai Lugansky for Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 2, a piece of herculean virtuosity, emotional intimacy and extreme difficulty.
