During the summer of 1944, while World War II was raging, Prokofiev’s response was to compose, “a hymn to free and happy Man, to his mighty powers, his pure and noble.” Lalo’s Concerto features Ecuadorian cellist Francisco Vila-Haas of the Sphinx program. Sphinx is dedicated to transforming lives through the power of diversity in the arts.
