Sibelius:     Finlandia

Rautavaara:     Cantus Arcticus

Nielsen:     Flute Concerto 

Rachmaninov:     Symphonic Dances

After a blaze of Finnish national pride we are taken to the lonely marshes, where haunting birdsong is set alongside heartbreakingly beautiful orchestral sounds. Then Rachmaninov's final work, a culmination of all that makes him great.  With bright colours, lush textures, savage rhythms and his most poignant melodies set in eerie twilight, he overcomes the bleakness of the Dies Irae with a final glorious Hallelujah.


Conductor: Philip Hesketh

Soloist: Alex Jakeman
