Big symphonies awaken big feelings – and when Sibelius’ Second Symphony reaches its majestic finish, it’s with a melody that might just stay with you for life. It’ll make a thrilling climax to a concert filled with incredible moments; from the grandeur of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, played by the incomparable James Ehnes, to John Adams’ uproarious ‘Foxtrot for Orchestra’ as Chairman Mao, a swing band and 80s minimalism collide under the Californian sun. What happens next? Scotland’s about to find out…
