A great wartime testament to the human spirit performed by the West Australian Symphony Orchestra.

Premiered in Moscow in 1945, Prokofiev’s Fifth Symphony is a powerful wartime testament which the composer described as “a symphony of the greatness of the human spirit, a song of praise of free and happy mankind.” But does the exultant finale represent the conquest of a vanquished enemy or a personal victory over Stalin’s repressive regime?

Decide for yourself as Joshua Weilerstein makes his WASO debut with this powerful symphony.

“Joshua Weilerstein... One of the most promising podium presences of his generation.” - LA Times
