Vänskä Conducts Sibelius

SIBELIUS
Suite from Karelia
Pohjola's Daughter
The Oceanides
Six Humoresques for Violin and Orchestra
Tapiola

No conductor in the world brings out the subtle, ice-crystal beauty of Finnish composer Jean Sibelius' music like Osmo Vänskä.

The year 2015 brings the 150th anniversary of Sibelius’ birth, and the Orchestra will celebrate throughout the season with beloved classics and little-known gems of this history-shaping composer. Of special note are the Humoresques, charming miniatures-in-dialogue for violin and orchestra. Whether you’re new to Sibelius or have thrilled for years to the Vänskä interpretations, this program is for you.
