In celebration of their 150th birth anniversaries in 2015, the SSO presents a programme showcasing the mastery of Carl Nielsen and Jean Sibelius. It was the Espansiva Symphony that first gained Nielsen recognition outside his home country, whilst Finlandia - even today one of the key national songs of Finland - and the sparkling and technically demanding Violin Concerto continue to stand amongst Sibelius' most significant compositions.
Award-winning violinist Ning Feng returns to join Lan Shui and the SSO for the dark and intense Sibelius Concerto in D minor. The Espansiva Symphony achieved international renown for Nielsen, who described its pastoral second movement as 'the purist idyll...the peaceful mood that one could imagine in Paradise'.
