"It's hard to imagine a more riveting performance of [Sibelius] than the thrilling interpretation given by the Minnesota Orchestra and Osmo Vänskä." —The New York Times
Renowned conductor Osmo Vänskä celebrates his Finnish compatriot Jean Sibelius by bringing his long-awaited Sibelius symphony cycle to Carnegie Hall with the Minnesota Orchestra. Regarded as some of the greatest works of the 20th century, each of the composer's seven symphonies has captivated audiences, from ominous brooding and bleak desolation to triumphant heroism. These masterpieces are performed alongside some of Sibelius's other symphonic gems rooted in Finnish folklore, including Tapiola and Pohjola's Daughter, as well as additional celebrated masterworks with distinguished soloists Hilary Hahn and Anne Sofie von Otter.
