About This Performance
There are reasons why The Planets has influenced so many composers of science fiction and fantasy film scores. It explores human consciousness against backdrops of outer space and ancient myth, with almost alien harmonic and orchestral effects evoking contemporary primitivism and machine music.
Music to move heaven and earth.
Leonidas Kavakos – The Strad’s “violinist of violinists” – plays Prokofiev’s dazzling concerto.
Enhance your experience with a view of the planets from Grand Avenue!
