Sibelius: Symphony No.5

Lars Vogt, piano
CBSO
Edward Gardner, conductor

Sibelius's Fifth Symphony begins with a glowing sunrise and ends with a vision of a flight of swans - and one of the simplest but noblest melodies ever written. A real CBSO speciality, there's no finer way to salute Sibelius in his anniversary year. First, though, Edward Gardner takes us to sea with Felix Mendelssohn, and joins the masterly Lars Vogt in Mozart's little jewel of a piano concerto.
