Sibelius Ablaze

Concert or Performance

12 Oct 2018 to 13 Oct 2018

The final chords of Sibelius’s Fifth Symphony ring out into the silence, and it’s like you’re gliding at 10,000 feet. The whole symphony is one almighty surge upwards, following the flock of swans that flew over Sibelius one day and inspired the magnificent horn theme of the last movement.

Three oboe players converge: Douglas Boyd conducts as Celia Craig (ASO’s Principal Oboe) takes a new concerto on its maiden flight; it has been written especially for her by Judith Weir, whose music is much admired for its clarity and lightness. The sense of lift begins with Haydn’s Symphony No.96, the first one he wrote for his enthusiastic London fans. A bright, effervescent work with trumpets, timpani…and another oboe solo!
