“Salonen,” as the New Yorker states unequivocally, “was born to conduct Sibelius.” Indeed, regarded as the world’s finest interpreter of his Finnish countryman, the maestro finds ever new layers of grace and fire in the composer’s works. For this stirring program, Salonen pairs Sibelius’s heroic second symphony with another masterpiece in D major, Brahms’s violin concerto, a fiery, protean pinnacle of the repertoire. Violinist Alina Ibragimova shines in the latter’s famously difficult but glorious solo.
