BBC SSO 2024/25: Afternoon Performance - Sibelius' Symphony No.3

Mendelssohn Hebrides Overture (c.11 mins) 

Magnus Lindberg Violin Concerto No.1 (c.25 mins) 

Sibelius Symphony No.3 (c.30 mins) 

Tami Pohjola violin 

Taavi Oramo conductor

Everyone knows the tale of Felix Mendelssohn’s trip to the Hebrides, and the sonic enchantment that emerged from that (slightly choppy) boat trip to Fingal’s Cave. What more can we say? These isles sometimes have that effect on visitors. Jean Sibelius ran into fogbanks as his steamer took him to Britain, and you can hear them swirling around the expansive Finnish landscape of his sunlit Third Symphony. And Magnus Lindberg’s radiant First Violin Concerto was hailed as an instant classic after its premiere in 2006. Two of the most dynamic young stars in Finnish music – violinist Tami Pohjola and conductor Taavi Oramo – bring a special freshness and energy to music filled with sea air and northern light.
