Thomas Søndergård & RSNO - Prokofiev 5 (Live) - The Scotsman

How often can we keep saying this about Søndergård, whose partnership with the RSNO is so comfortably established that there is utter ease and confidence in every one of the players’ faces, and in their responsive actions, which instantly translates into deep and meaningful musical expression?

Søndergård ended with Prokofiev’s Fifth Symphony, a work written at a troubled time for the composer, but interpreted here with driving positivity, acerbic wit and searing potency.
