SIBELIUS

Symphony No. 2

The dreamy Andante of Mozart’s 21st Piano Concerto has been called an “unrelieved, time-stopping beauty,” but there’s also an ebullient fir t movement and an animated finale to delight the listener. The dark-hued soundscapes and spectacular brass chorales of Sibelius’s most popular symphony bring the concert to a thrilling climax.

“Astonishingly aware and exciting conducting and worth the ticket price alone.”
