For the first RNCM Symphony Orchestra concert of the Spring, we’ve programmed perhaps the greatest of all of Sibelius’ works. Extraordinarily fluid, expressive and epic in character, the piece lasts just 22 minutes as the composer manages to combine the usual four movements into a single continuity, in which it’s impossible to tell where one section ends and another begins.
