Stefan Hofkes conductor ∑ Eloisa-Fleur Thom violin Biography
Sibelius | Karelia Suite
This concert celebrates composers born 150 years ago in 1865. First and last up is the mighty Sibelius, with his pretty and melodic Karelia Suite and his iconic and ever-popular 5th Symphony, with its gloriously sweeping themes and its dramatic and suspenseful ending. Between those giant Finnish book-ends we have Nielsenís wonderful sunrise evocation, Helios Overture and the fantastic musical torment of The Sorcererís Apprentice by Dukas. Centrepiece of the programme is Glazunovís gorgeous and inventive Violin Concerto for which we are delighted to welcome back Eloisa-Fleur Thom as our star soloist.
