Due to a production issue, the release of this concert has been rescheduled for November 27th at 8pm.
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 2015 with the late, great Polish master Krzysztof Penderecki's Sinfonietta for Strings. The adventure extends back to 1815, with Schubert’s playful Third Symphony, before returning to 2015 in Finland, as Lotta Wennäkoski conjures textures and colours like you’ve never imagined.
