Royal Liverpool Philharmonic: Music Nation

Recorded last Sunday at Philharmonic Hall, Liverpool, as part of the BBC's Music Nation weekend.

Christian Lindberg conducts the RLPO in a concert of Scandanavian classics: including Nielsen's Helios Overture and the Second Symphony by Sibelius. Alessandro Taverna joins them for Grieg's evergreen Piano Concerto.

The Helios Overture is a bracing hymn to the rising sun; while Sibelius' Second Symphony begins in the peace of the Finnish forests, and ends in a mighty flood of patriotic emotion. The Grieg has been a mainstay of the repertoire ever since its premiere in 1869.
