Sibelius Symphony No.1
Music transports you. Tonight, Andrew Manze flies us to the forests of Finland, where the colours of the aurora borealis flicker through Sibelius’ tempestuous First Symphony. He then drops by on 18th-century Paris, where a bright young thing called Mozart is making quite a splash. And, together with Mahan Esfahani – musical explorer, and harpsichordist without limits – he creates a whole new world: the fantastic new concerto by British counter-culture icon, Gavin Bryars.
