2015: The midnight sun

Lotta Wennäkoski Verdigris (London premiere)
Sibelius Symphony No. 5

Hannu Lintu conductor
Gábor Boldoczki trumpet
London Philharmonic Orchestra

When Jean Sibelius saw a flight of swans in the sunset, he knew that he had the ending of his Fifth Symphony. Premiered in 1915, and conducted tonight by Sibelius’s fellow Finn Hannu Lintu, it’s the culmination of a journey that begins in 1815, with Schubert’s playful Third Symphony. But as part of our 2020 Vision series the adventure extends right up to 2015, and a chance to hear Hungarian trumpet star Gábor Boldoczki in a punchy ‘little concerto’ by the contemporary Polish master Krzysztof Penderecki – while back in Finland (but still in 2015), Lotta Wennäkoski conjures textures and colours like you’ve never imagined.

The concert is supported in part by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute through Polska Music Programme and their partnership with LOT Polish Airlines
