- Wagner The Flying Dutchman: Overture, 11′
- Mozart Piano Concerto No. 21, K. 467, 29′
- Sibelius Symphony No. 1, 38′
Winter gales and epic drama: Wagner’s Flying Dutchman overture begins with the crash of waves, and Sibelius’ First Symphony ends amidst the windswept forests of Finland. Hold tight for a thrilling journey, as Vassily Sinaisky makes a welcome return – and joins Britain’s most admired young pianist, Benjamin Grosvenor, in the timeless tranquillity of Mozart’s 21st Piano Concerto (the one they used to call Elvira Madigan).
CBSO+ 1pm, Level 5 foyer: Writer, lecturer and broadcaster David Nice discusses Sibelius’ Symphony No. 1.
NB: For logistical reasons this is a change from the originally advertised pre-concert talk and venue. We are delighted that David Nice has been able to step in.
