Esa-Pekka Salonen conductor
Beethoven Symphony No. 3, Eroica
Sibelius Symphony No. 6
Esa-Pekka Salonen leads the Philharmonia through a scintillating programme offering back-to-back symphonies. First Beethoven’s titanic Eroica Symphony, twice as long as the symphonies of Haydn and Mozart and often said to mark the beginning of the Romantic period, and Sibelius’ austere Sixth Symphony: “whereas most other modern composers are engaged in manufacturing cocktails of every hue and description, I offer the public pure cold water”.
