BBC SSO - Sibelius Violin Concerto

Details

SIBELIUS Violin Concerto (c.31 mins) BRUCKNER Symphony No.7 (c.68 mins)

Bomsori Kim violin Ryan Wigglesworth conductor

The air shimmers, and out of the depths, the orchestra unfurls a melody – a tune that sighs, sings and reaches upwards towards heaven itself. Anton Bruckner said that the opening of his Seventh Symphony came to him in a dream, and you can believe it. But it’s just the start of a truly epic journey, and tonight our Chief Conductor Ryan Wigglesworth takes the orchestra through peaks of joy and depths of sorrow before climbing the final, shining summit. This is music – and imagination – on the grandest possible scale, so what better way to start than in another vast, beautiful landscape, as violinist Bomsori Kim (“impeccable” – BBC Music Magazine) explores the elemental grandeur of Sibelius’s Violin Concerto?
