Rautavaara Cantus Arcticus – Concerto for Birds and Orchestra
Sibelius Rakastava (The Lover)
Sibelius En Saga
Grieg Incidental Music to Peer Gynt (with Soloist Klara Ek & CBSO Chorus)
Peer Gynt is a prankster, an adventurer and a rogue – a man who lives life without a thought for consequences. Everyone knows some of the wonderfully tuneful music that Grieg wrote to accompany his story: Morning and In the Hall of the Mountain King are two of the most popular classical favourites of all time. But the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra’s dynamic music director Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla never does anything by halves, and tonight she retells the whole story of Peer Gynt, including all of Grieg’s familiar incidental music plus lots of glorious stuff that you never usually get to hear!
Two dark musical legends by Sibelius help to set the Nordic mood; and we travel far beyond the Arctic Circle with Einojuhani Rautavaara, and a hauntingly beautiful masterpiece in which the birds of Northern Finland actually become the soloists.
