Sibelius: The Path to the Symphony

5. 1899

Friday 24 September 2004 12:00-13:00 (Radio 3)

Repeated: Friday 1 October 2004 0:00-1:00 (Radio 3)

The late 1890s in Finland provoke more or less open protests at Russia's heavy-handed dominance. Sibelius makes more than one powerful contribution. Tying together the various strands of this uneasy decade, a long-contemplated First Symphony marks at once a culmination and a fresh start.

Duration:

1 hour
