Triumph and tranquility

Vänskä: Sibelius Symphony Cycle

7:30 PM, ​ Royal Festival Hall, London, SE1 8XX

Sibelius Symphony No. 3
Vaughan Williams The Lark Ascending
Sibelius Symphony No. 2

Osmo Vänskä conductor
Yu-Chien Tseng violin
London Philharmonic Orchestra

A country scene swells to a hymn of triumph, shining crags emerge from swirling banks of fog, and in faraway England, a lark soars blissfully into the summer sky. The second instalment of Osmo Vänskä’s Sibelius adventure with the LPO ranges from the classical energy of Sibelius’s Third Symphony to the sweeping emotional odyssey of the ever-popular Second – and it all ends in a blaze of glory. We also hear the winner of the 2015 Singapore International Violin and 2015 Tchaikovsky International competitions, Yu-Chien Tseng, take wing in Vaughan Williams’s The Lark Ascending. Like Sibelius’s symphonies, this is music rooted in its own sense of place that somehow speaks with a universal voice.
