With two live concerts: the Ulster Orchestra performs music by Sibelius and Rautavaara in Belfast. Plus the BBC Philharmonic performing Sibelius, Vasks and Brahms in Salford.
Not one but two live concerts both with a Nordic theme: Finnish conductor Tuomas Hannikainen conducts the Ulster Orchestra in music by his compatriots. Sibelius wrote his Music from King Kristian II for a Scandinavian historical play by his friend Adolf Paul and Einojuhani Rautavaara's 7th Symphony, Angel of Light, was commissioned by the Bloomington Symphony Orchestra to celebrate its 25th anniversary in 1995, completing the composer's Angel Series. John Toal presents. Then just after 3pm Adam Tomlinson presents a concert by the BBC Philharmonic of Sibelius, Vasks and Brahms.
