Edward Gardner conducts Sibelius


    Beethoven Overture, Egmont (8’)
    Shostakovich Violin Concerto No. 1 (36’)
    Sibelius Symphony No. 5 (31’)


  • Edward Gardner conductor*
  • Patricia Kopatchinskaja violin

Sibelius sees a flight of swans on a summer evening, and hears a melody that could have been wrought from the elements. Beethoven shakes his fist at tyranny, and sounds a fanfare for freedom.

And Shostakovich whispers secrets in the shadows, in a concerto that refuses to be silent. It’s all about memory, and all about truth. Big music demands big personalities, and they don’t come much bigger than violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja: virtuoso, storyteller and all-round phenomenon. With LPO Principal Conductor Edward Gardner at the helm, she’ll drive straight to the heart of this powerful programme.

*Edward Gardner’s position in the LPO is generously supported by Aud Jebsen.
