If the current fascination with things Nordic has gripped you, this is your concert! Sakari Oramo and Lisa Batiashvili gave the world premiere in Stockholm in October 2016 of the Swede Anders Hillborg’s Second Violin Concerto (‘fresh and skilfully constructed… virtuosic – unbelievably exciting’ Leipziger Volkszeitung). They bring it to London in the context of music from Finland – two further symphonies in the cycle that the BBC SO and Sakari Oramo are presenting this season. The Fourth with its powerful sense of foreboding is an enormously powerful work while the enigmatic and concentrated Sixth rarely fails to make a huge impact on its listeners.
