Simon Rattle conducts Sibelius’s Symphonies Nos. 5–7

This concert is the culmination of Simon Rattle’s celebrated Sibelius cycle from the 2009/10 season. The programme consists of symphonies nos. 5, 6 and 7, in which the qualities of the earlier works merge: the lyrical Nordic tone of the first two symphonies, and the experimental formal language and harmonies of Symphonies Nos. 3 and 4. An evening which, in the view of the Guardian, revealed “the orchestra’s most precious asset: its total dedication”.
