Prokofiev Symphony No. 7

February 14–16, 2019
Benaroya Hall

Alexander Basta

In the last major work of his life, Prokofiev filled his Seventh Symphony with music of disarming innocence and simplicity. Sibelius, the proud son of Finland, channeled his austere Nordic sensibilities into his Violin Concerto, which spans from an icy tremble to a pounding dance once dubbed the “polonaise for polar bears.” Don’t miss the return of violinist Aleksey Semenenko, who “played with deep sensitivity and chamber-like focus” in his last Seattle Symphony appearance (The Seattle Times).
