Sibelius’ new symphonic sound

BBC NOW’s Discovery Guide Dr Jonathan James, will be joined by conductors, soloists and our musicians to delve into the ideas and stories behind the music.

In his second symphony, Sibelius sets out on a radical path. We’ll look at the break-through ideas from this work that will shape the rest of his symphonic output and discover what makes Sibelius sound so unique.
