Cd Feature/ Paavo Järvi & CSO: "Prokofiev: Symphony No. 5"
Prokofiev's „Symphony No. 5“ is definitely not one of the easiest pieces in terms of interpretation. In its prism, personal conflict, political turmoil, ideological differences and the yearning desire of a Russian composer to be able to work in his home country are broken into a multifacetted beam of light, which still shines brightly through the dust of almost seven decades. To Paavo Järvi, however, things are much simpler than that.
