Prokofiev: Beyond Peter and
the Wolf

Brian Ganz, Piano
Magdalena Wor, mezzo-soprano
Victoria Gau, conductor

Award-winning DC pianist Brian Ganz performs
Prokofiev’s thrilling Piano Concerto
No. 3, rich with lyrical passages and
propulsive tempi. Prokofiev wrote several
scores for films, including two on this
program—the music for the lighthearted
Lieutenant Kijé and the 1938 historical
drama Alexander Nevsky, a collaboration
with Sergei Eisenstein, one of the greatest
Russian film directors.
