BBC SSO - Sibelius Violin Concerto
SIBELIUS Violin Concerto (c.31 mins) BRUCKNER Symphony No.7 (c.68 mins)
Bomsori Kim violin Ryan Wigglesworth conductor
The air shimmers, and out of the depths, the orchestra unfurls a melody – a tune that sighs, sings and reaches upwards towards heaven itself. Anton Bruckner said that the opening of his Seventh Symphony came to him in a dream, and you can believe it. But it’s just the start of a truly epic journey, and tonight our Chief Conductor Ryan Wigglesworth takes the orchestra through peaks of joy and depths of sorrow before climbing the final, shining summit. This is music – and imagination – on the grandest possible scale, so what better way to start than in another vast, beautiful landscape, as violinist Bomsori Kim (“impeccable” – BBC Music Magazine) explores the elemental grandeur of Sibelius’s Violin Concerto?
