Pohjola’s daughter sits atop a rainbow, weaving visions and spells. Infante, meanwhile, doesn’t mean a child, but a princess of Spain – and Ravel’s Pavane is a haunting dream of far away and long ago. These two women of legend frame Shi-Yeon Sung’s programme, each introducing a very different 20th-century masterpiece. Prokofiev wrote his First Violin Concerto during the Russian Revolution, but violinist Stephen Waarts will soar, sparkle and dance his way into a world of fairy-tale enchantment. And Sibelius’s monumental Seventh Symphony is one of those pieces whose full power only becomes clear when you hear it played live: primal and utterly life-affirming.
