Søndergård, who was recently appointed Principal Conductor with the RSNO, will conduct symphonies by Prokofiev in his first symphonic recording with the orchestra. Following a concert performance The Herald commented, “This was the conductor at his most energetic and impassioned, and it drew a corresponding performance from the orchestra.” The Fifth Symphony was written in difficult circumstances but Søndergård’s interpretation highlights the positivity, humour and energy in the work.
