Join John Storgårds and the BBC Philharmonic for the first concert in their cycle of Sibelius's symphonies. This concert features two iconic symphonies: the First strikes a blow for Nationalism in a symphonic context, and the Fifth, written as the First World War raged on, is a powerful and poetic synthesis of Sibelius's symphonic style.
