About this event

The words of Kurt Vonnegut blasted American composer Andrew Norman out of his creative block: an explosive opening to a concert that celebrates Stravinsky at his most witty, and Sakari Oramo’s very personal angle on the woodland magic and Arctic gales of Sibelius’s youthful First Symphony.

It’s high-octane stuff; but Oramo has been exploring Sibelius for his whole life, and he knows that the First Symphony – with its raging storms and shimmering, aurora borealis colours - is about as Romantic as this great Finnish symphonist gets. The superb Norwegian violinist Vilde Frang makes a very welcome return as soloist in a concerto that Stravinsky (ever the joker) designed to be unplayable. Believe us: that won’t stop her…
