Jean Sibelius
Symphony No. 7 op. 105
- interval -

Grand gestures are the order of the day here! For many listeners, Sergei Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto is a byword for lyrical musical sensibility. The Japanese pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii, who is blind, has already performed it in many of the world’s concert halls. Now he returns to the Tonkunstler Orchestra with one of his favourite pieces. The first part of the concert is all about epic musical storytelling and is crowned by Jean Sibelius’s Seventh Symphony, the composer’s last. It took Sibelius ten years to complete this orchestral fantasia in a single movement.
