Benjamin Northey Conducts Sibelius’ Symphony No.2
Expansive and spacious, Sibelius’ Second Symphony is an unconventional and bold work. A key development in his truly unique style, we begin to see the mature composer’s genius in taking disparate musical fragments and assembling them into a soaring masterpiece. A thrilling journey from beginning to end, once the finale begins, we realise that this is what we’ve been waiting for all along.
