Conducted by Vasily Petrenko, the RLPO perform a programme which contrasts the nationalistic folk sounds of Sibelius's Karelia Suite with Gustav Mahler's powerful first symphony. The orchestra is also joined by acclaimed trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth for Alexander Arutyunyan's exciting Trumpet Concerto which has its own echoes of Armenian gypsy music.
