The London Philharmonic Orchestra presents a complete cycle of Sibelius's symphonies set amongst some of his lesser known works.
Osmo Vanska, one of the world's leading interpreters of Sibelius's music and a regular collaborator with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, curates a four-concert cycle of the composer's symphonies. Osmo is joined by one of Finland's best-kept vocal secrets Helena Juntunen, whose deliveries exude a radiance and Nordic charm all of their own and rising Norwegian star Henning Kraggerud in the opening concert for Sibelius's Six Humoresques.
The festival also allows the Orchestra's Principal Cellist Kristina Blaumane an opportunity to demonstrate her fine skills as soloist in Sibelius's Cantique and Devotion for cello and orchestra.
Wednesday 27 January - Friday 5 February
