Programme

Concert information

Hannu Lintu, Chief Conductor of the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, brings an appropriately Scandinavian programme to City Halls. Born in Stockholm, Wilhelm Stenhammar composed his Second Symphony between 1911 and 1915. It is full of lush Brahmsian melodies and an ideal companion to a selection from the incidental music which Grieg wrote for Ibsen’s play Peer Gynt. Here making his BBC SSO debut, Stefan Jackiw performs the technically challenging but enchanting Six Humoresques for violin and orchestra by Sibelius.
