Northern Lights with Stphane Denve

Stphane Denve Conductor
Lars Vogt Piano 

Salonen Nyx
Grieg Piano Concerto
Sibelius Symphony No. 2 

Principal Guest Conductor Stphane Denve brings his considerable flair to this musical buffet. We begin with Finnish composer Esa-Pekka Salonens symphonic poem Nyx (shes the Greek personification of the night). Salonen says he aspired to convey Nyxs elusive character; if you see shadows flickering around Verizon Hall, well, dont say we didnt warn you. To Norway and Edvard Grieg, whose Piano Concerto is one of the most popular works in the keyboard canon. Soloist Lars Vogt will scale its soul-stirring heights. We return to Finland for our finale from Jean Sibelius. Coming at a time of Russian oppression, his Second Symphony boosted his patriotic credentials. Today we can appreciate this wonderful work on its own terms, as simply great music.
