21 Kazuki Yamada.


  • Prokofiev Symphony No. 1 (Classical)14′
  • Bruch Violin Concerto No. 123′
  • Mendelssohn Symphony No. 3 (Scottish)39′

Felix Mendelssohn always enjoyed visiting Birmingham, but he adored Scotland too, and his Third Symphony conjures up wild landscapes, skirling pipes and Highland reels - in short, the kind of music that Kazuki Yamada simply loves to conduct. With Prokofiev's firecracker of a first symphony for starters, and the superb Daishin Kashimoto as soloist in the world's favourite violin concerto, it's just tune after glorious tune.
