  1. The Oceanides Op 73 - Jean Sibelius
  2. Concerto for cello and orchestra in E minor Op 85 - Sir Edward Elgar
  3. Variations on a theme of Frank Bridge Op 10 - Benjamin Britten
  4. Symphony No 6 in D minor Op 104 - Jean Sibelius

Jean Sibelius found a vast stillness in the endless forests of his native Finland, while an ocean voyage prompted visions of classical myth and elemental power. Susanna Mälkki begins this concert with Sibelius’s warmest tonepoem and ends it with his gentlest symphony: in between come two very different visions of nature from two British masters. Fresh sea air blows through every bar of Britten’s youthful Frank Bridge Variations. And Edward Elgar retreated to rural Sussex to write his Cello Concerto, a work whose haunted poetry – as Sheku Kanneh-Mason (2016 BBC Young Musician of the Year) will demonstrate – takes on a fresh meaning for each generation.
