Sibelius - Symphony No.1

Gyorgy Ligeti believed music to be a combination of the mathematical and the mystical, or, in his words, “clocks” and “clouds” – and his glistening, ethereal Melodien is perfect “cloud” music. Perhaps closer to the “clock” end of the spectrum is Dmitri Shostakovich’s witty Piano Concerto No.2, with which celebrated British pianist Kathryn Stott makes her APO debut. Shostakovich composed this playful divertissement for his son Maxim, and wrote pianists’ warm-up exercises into the last movement!

Jean Sibelius’s passionate Symphony No.1 covers a huge emotional landscape, beginning in the loneliness of the vast Finnish forests and finishing in a blaze of triumph.
