Prokofiev - Cinderella - T0258284413A rare opportunity to hear Prokofiev's generously melodic fairy-tale ballet score in its full glory. The composer began work on Cinderella in the spring of 1940 but, with the onset of war, his compositional priorities changed and he did not tackle the orchestration for another four years. It proved to be one of the music's most original features, evoking an alluringly strange, ?silvery' sound-world. There will be one interval.

French-born pianist Hélène Grimaud, a Last Night soloist in 2008, plays the vivacious, blues-tinged concerto by Ravel. While the popular suite from Strauss's waltz-infused Der Rosenkavalier conjures up mid-18th-century Vienna, the intoxicating whirl of Scriabin's Symphony No. 3 relates to a cosmic dance between the human spirit and the universe.

London Symphony Orchestra - T1261096646Valery Gergiev returns at the helm of the LSO to conduct the most devastatingly bleak of Shostakovich's three 'war symphonies'. Composed at the time of the Battle of Stalingrad, the Eighth is paired with the belated UK premiere of Schnittke's early, Orff-influenced oratorio, an agonised expression of solidarity with the victims of the second atomic bomb, dropped on the city of Nagasaki the day before Japan's surrender. Heavily criticised by the Soviet Composers' Union, it only received its 1959 broadcast premiere (on Moscow World Service Radio) after Shostakovich's recommendation, and was not publicly performed until 2006.
