Glow – Sibelius Academy Symphony Orchestra, cond. Eva Ollikainen
The concert opens with Richard Strauss’s passionate tone poem Don Juan, followed by a concerto by Witold Lutosławski for instruments not often heard as soloists – harp and oboe. The programme concludes with Lutosławski’s Symphony no. 3, an outpouring of raw power that is not to be missed. Chamber ensembles of the Sibelius Academy provide a musical appetiser at the café at the Music Centre before the evening’s concert.
