Thomas Dausgaard, conductor
"Other composers mix brightly coloured cocktails" said Jean Sibelius. "I offer pure, cool water". From the radiant sunrise that opens the Fifth to the deep tranquillity of the Sixth and the windswept peaks of the Seventh, Sibelius's last three symphonies are like a force of nature. For BBC SSO Chief Conductor-Designate, Thomas Dausgaard, this is music that can transform the very way you hear the world; "at once monumental and intimately personal" is how one critic described his approach to Sibelius. Under Dausgaard's direction, this single-evening Sibelius trilogy will be an exhilarating journey through one of the 20th century's greatest - and most inspiring - musical minds.
