“In Alpesh Chauhan, the BBC SSO has a real find on its hands” wrote The Herald in 2015, and Chauhan’s imaginatively-conceived programmes and emotionally charged performances have been among the highlights of recent seasons. In this concert, he places three masterpieces of the 1930s in revelatory counterpoint. The Sinfonia da Requiem might just be the rawest music Britten ever wrote. Stravinsky’s Concerto in E flat major, ‘Dumbarton Oaks’ reinvents Bach for the Art Deco era. And Prokofiev’s ballet Romeo and Juliet remakes Shakespeare in the iron and steel of Stalin’s USSR – yet somehow gets closer than any other version to the story’s tender heart.
