ABOUT THIS CONCERT

Renowned Finnish conductor Osmo Vänskä interprets music of Finland’s greatest musical export, Jean Sibelius. Full of soaring, majestic melodies, Sibelius’s First Symphony was his most lushly romantic, and is often called the greatest ‘First’ of any composer in music history. Vänskä also shares music from one of Finland’s most outstanding contemporary composers, Lotta Wennäkoski. Dvořák’s delightful Violin Concerto is steeped in the spirited folk-dance traditions of his Bohemian homeland, and superb violinist Tai Murray (“technically flawless…vivacious and scintillating,” Muso Magazine) draws out every vibrant phrase.
