Sumptuous orchestration, pianistic pyrotechnics, and acerbic wit highlight an evening of Russian music that spans the Imperial and Soviet eras. Scriabin’s obsession with mysticism and sensory stimulation form the core of his lushly scored Symphony No. 3, “The Divine Poem.” Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 2 offers its share of dazzling orchestration and a taxing role for the pianist. Soviet authorities expected grandiose display in the tradition of other famous ninth symphonies, but Shostakovich instead juxtaposed the tragic and comic, including a breathlessly giddy finale, in his post-war work.
