Sibelius Finlandia

Sibelius Luonnotar

Sibelius Karelia Suite


Sibelius Symphony No. 5

Vladimir Ashkenazy and the Philharmonia present some of Sibelius's most popular works as well as a spellbinding rarity, Sibelius's tone poem based on Finnish myth and premiered up the road in Gloucester just over a hundred years ago. To sing it is Finnish soprano Helena Juntunen whose 2010 performance prompted The Times to observe: “London is unlikely to hear Sibelius like this for quite some time.”

This concert is part of the Ashkenazy Sibelius Series series
