The BBC SO celebrates Nature in all her moods at the Berlin Festival.

A flight of 16 swans was the catalyst for Sibelius’s stirring Fifth Symphony, with its ambiguous, mysterious ending, while Olga Neuwirth’s ... miramondo multiplo... is a brilliant rivalry between the elements and is performed by trumpet virtuoso Håkan Hardenberger.

Nature turns menacing in Mussorgsky’s vivid tone-poem A Night on the Bare Mountain. Boundary-breaking singer Nora Fischer is the soloist in the European premiere of The Only One by Dutch composer Louis Andriessen, who turned 80 this year.
