Sibelius Rakastava (The Lover) | Nielsen Clarinet Concerto | Shostakovich Symphony No. 4
Tickets (plus booking fee): £35 - £10
Imagine a symphony of iron and steel: a masterpiece so vast and politically charged that for 25 years, no-one dared perform it. Today we can hear the symphony for what it is: a gripping eye-witness account of one of the most turbulent eras in modern history. Principal Guest Conductor John Storgards joins the incomparable Sabine Meyer to offer an early anniversary present to one of his personal favourite composers, Carl Nielsen. Sibelius’s haunting Rakastava quietly sets the scene.
