  1. Concerto for piano and orchestra in A minor Op 16 - Edvard Grieg
  2. Symphony No 5 in E flat Op 82 - Jean Sibelius

For Sibelius, only nature could transcend the agony of life. The composer’s Symphony No 5 is perhaps the supreme musical example of that concept – a work in which the composer imagines himself soaring above earthly concerns like the flock of swans he describes using the orchestra’s inspiring, ascendanttrumpets. The Nordic region’s most stirring symphony is heard here at the Sheldonian Theatre alongside its most famous Piano Concerto - Edvard Grieg’s Concerto in A minor. The composition is a reconciling of romantic sweep and passion with the clarity and fresh air of his Norwegian mountain aesthetic. Ukrainian pianist Anna Fedorova joins Marios Papadopoulos and the Orchestra for this concert of bold statements from the north.
