HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL: SIBELIUS’ SECOND

March 24-26, 2017
Helzberg Hall | Kauffman Center

At a time when Finland was under Russian domination, Sibelius’ Second Symphony was viewed as a message of hope. Today, the fiercely dramatic and ultimately triumphant work is one of Sibelius’ most-loved compositions. The sparkling overture to Danish composer Nielsen’s opera, Maskarade, sets the stage for a tale of romance and mistaken identity. American virtuoso Anne Akiko Meyers stars in not one, but two works for violin and orchestra — the world premiere of Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara’s newest violin concerto and Ravel’s Tzigane, inspired by vibrant Gypsy music.
