Dark visions and big tunes from Jean SibeliusEvery journey has to begin somewhere, and for the young Sibelius that place was the national pride and burgeoning creativity of Finland at the end of the 19th century. Osmo Vänskä launches the LPO’s Sibelius Cycle with the cheerful patriotism of the Karelia Suite and the romantic verve of the First Symphony – music of primal forces and heady romance. In between comes Britten’s anguished Violin Concerto, written on the brink of the Second World War and performed by the young Dutch virtuoso Simone Lamsma. You can be sure to expect dark visions and big tunes from this stirring start to a truly epic tale.
