Impressive is the high emotional content that the musicians give to each individual work. This  create a fascination that takes the listener from the first note until the end. Dr. Uta Swora

A Man of Contradictions

However hard you try, it is impossible to form a clear picture of Sergei Prokofiev and the same applies to his work. The trends and styles of the various creative periods are too comple x and diver se. Furthermore, there seems to be an unbridgeable gulf between the self-confident innovator, (who, during his studies in Russia and later in avant-garde influenced Europe, wrote music to provoke the establishment) and the national composer, who (apparently) dutifully placed himself in the service of Stalinism. Whilst his biography cannot altogether solve this inconsistency, it can shed some light on it.

Prokofiev composed very little chamber music, but did so throughout his work. So these pieces – as well as the great symphonic works and solo concertos – display the inexhaustible variety of his compositional output on the one hand, and on the other, are an eloquent mirror on the different stages of the composer’s eventful life.

About

The Ludwig Chamber Players (LCP) is a leading Ensemble for music from the classical period to music of today. Be inspired by our featured programs or our music and video clips.

The first rehearsal of the Ludwig Chamber Players took place in spring 2013. The musicians were preparing their first concert at the prestigious Tokyo Spring festival. After a few bars of the Septet from L. v. Beethoven there was an overwhelming desire for a continued collaboration. The following concerts in Tokyo and Osaka were euphorically received by the audience. The main repertoire of the award-winning soloist ensemble is the chamber music for mixed strings and wind instruments of the 18th and 19thCentury. Also works of contemporary composers find their way into LCP´s Programs.

Thank you to our sponsors, supporters and friends!
