Leon Fleisher, piano
Piotr Gajewski, conductor
Leon Fleisher performs Prokofiev’s demanding left-hand piano concerto, commissioned by philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein’s brother Paul, a concert pianist who lost his right arm in World War I. Come under the spell of Mussorgsky’s celebrated orchestral tone poem that portrays a spooky, nocturnal witches’ Sabbath, and listen to strains of Tchaikovsky’s heartbreaking final symphony.
