Pianist Lauren Zhang was 16 years old when her “daring, gravity-defying” performance won BBC Young Musician in 2018. Here she makes her first BBC SSO appearance, in Rachmaninov’s epic Third Concerto: sometimes called the “Everest of piano concertos”. Alissa Firsova is the daughter of two major Russian composers, and Die Windsbraut (The Bride of the Wind) takes its inspiration from a painting by Oskar Kokoschka – a musical evocation of the sumptuous, doomed world of fin-de-siècle Vienna. And Prokofiev originally planned his Seventh and final Symphony as a sort of musical fairy-tale for children. But it casts a spell that goes infinitely darker and deeper.
