Love songs and elemental forces, from an old friend of the CBSO.
Friends reunited: there’s only one Sakari Oramo – the irrepressible Finnish maestro who became an adopted Brummie during his decade as the CBSO’s music director – and no-one conducts Sibelius with more passion or power. He’s joined by his wife, soprano Anu Komsi, in Strauss’ Four Last Songs: music of heart-melting sweetness and beauty, performed by artists we’ve taken to our hearts.
