Scythian Suite, op.20
Symphony no.6 in B minor, op.74 'Pathetique'
ArtistsAnna Prohaska (soprano)
Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela
Prokofiev’s extrovert Scythian Suite is a gift for the boundless energy of these young players, while the intricacy and anguish of Berg’s Lulu-Suite are an Abbado speciality, with soprano Anna Prohaska, in her Lucerne Festival debut, singing the heroine’s dazzling statement of self-justification.
The concert ends with an impassioned account of Tchaikovsky’s Pathétique, his final symphony, one of the most moving works in music history.
"Abbado ... draws everything from this orchestra - and everything this marvel requires is there." - Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
"...a sound that, even in the dazzling glare of the brass, kept its razor-sharp edge and precise outlines. And so left room for incredible colours to emerge..." - Zentralschweiz am Sonntag
