Orchestral brilliance with RouvaliAdd to calendar
The music at this concert was written in the early 20th century and revolves around both natural mysticism and bold influences from the continent – music from a transitional period shaped by two different artistic temperaments. Sibelius had his roots in the national romanticism but looked in his last two symphonies towards new worlds that have liberated themselves from the earthly and concrete. Carl Nielsen raised his ear to the continent where exciting things were happening in the 1910s, at the same time as he followed his own marked path in the violin concerto: rhythmic, virtuoso and with warmth in his eyes.
International, Latvian violinist Baiba Skride has previously received many ovations in the Gothenburg Concert Hall, and also on tour to Germany and Belgium.
