To accompany the Symphony series, a rare treat from the archives - the youthful, passionate and epic 'Kullervo' Symphony by the great Finnish composer Jean Sibelius, in a classic performance from 1992. Sir Colin Davis, a truly great interpreter of Sibelius's music, conducts the London Symphony Orchestra with soloists soprano Soile Isokoski and baritone Jorma Hynninen. Introduced by Simon Russell Beale.
