Cantata for the 20th Anniversary of the October Revolution //

Sergei Prokofiev: «Cantata for the 20th Anniversary of the October Revolution» for Orchestra, Military Chapel and two Choirs (1936/37)Gabriel Prokofiev: «Concerto for Turntables & Orchestra» (2007)

Sergei Prokofiev's «Cantata for the 20th Anniversary of the October Revolution» is a tremendous artistic work seeking its equals in history of music. More than 500 musicians were meant to participate in its world premiere in 1937. However, the premiere was canceled. Overnight Prokofiev had fallen from grace. Only in 1966, long after Stalin's and Prokofiev's death, the work was presented to the public for the first time. Due to its political message, but also due to the large number of musicians needed, this work is only rarely performed, even though this cantata is regarded as one of Prokofiev's masterpieces.

Precisely 70 years lie between Sergei Prokofiev's cantata and the «Concerto for Turntables & Orchestra» of his grandson Gabriel Prokofiev, born in 1975 in London. In his compositions he combines classical music with club culture. The solo artist of this concert is the famous, award winning DJ Mr Switch from Birmingham.
