Sibelius’ music is intimately connected to the expansive beauty of his native Finland. His poetic notes hang in the air like snowflakes; with wind whistling through frozen forests, the music is a sensory delight.
Conductor Osmo Vänskä is universally acknowledged as 'our greatest living Sibelian' (Sunday Times) — his interpretations of his countryman’s music hailed for their 'marvellous energy and dramatic fire' (The Guardian). For this event, Vänskä has chosen pieces that bring to life Finnish myths and legends through Sibelius' rich and evocative soundworld: the creation of the world in Luonnotar and the heroic Lemminkäinen Suite including the beloved The Swan of Tuonela.
Vänskä is joined by acclaimed Finnish soprano Helena Juntunen for a selection of five songs inspired by Finnish folklore. Juntunen 'commands her audience’s attention' with a 'shimmering stream of glistening tone' (Bachtrack), and is the ideal singer for these heartfelt, richly textured works.
Does love burn brighter in a cold place? Discover the answer in this special Sydney Symphony celebration of Sibelius and the beauty of his homeland.
