SIBELIUS Symphony No. 2
Waves of Sound and Sea
Surrender to the siren-song of the sea in this evening of music inspired by the ocean. Special guest Hannu Lintu, Chief Conductor of the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, summons naiads with every note of Sibelius’ symphonic poem The Oceanides. Juno-award winning pianist Angela Hewitt carries us across Nameless Seas* in a new composition written especially for her. Close your eyes and let the soundwaves sweep you away.
*NAC co-commission with PianoEspoo; world premiere.
