Sibelius’ Second Symphony begins quietly, almost playfully. But it ends with soaring emotions and the feeling that somehow, you’ve been on the journey of a lifetime. Thomas Søndergård conducts a concert that’s all about the journey, and whether it’s Bent Sørensen following his imagination from the Manhattan skyline to a half-remembered Scandinavia, or the award-winning Scottish mezzo Catriona Morison setting sail with Hector Berlioz for the wildest shores of love, getting there is half the pleasure.

In memory of Tom Bruce Jones and in recognition of the generosity of Stina Bruce Jones.
