Esa-Pekka Salonen’s talents as both composer and conductor are on display in this thrilling program that traverses the elements. From the depths of Sibelius’s ambient, ancient seas, as depicted in his 1913 tone poem The Oceanides, emerges the cosmic virtuosity of Salonen’s acclaimed Cello Concerto, performed by the intrepid Norwegian cellist Truls Mørk. Then, Salonen—one of the world’s most electrifying Stravinsky interpreters—soars with the composer’s haunting musical fairy tale, The Firebird.
“Brings a dash of cool to classical music.”– New York Times on Esa-Pekka Salonen
