Sibelius’ First Symphony & Prokofiev

Streaming: Saturday, January 21, at 7:45pm EST

Experience Nordic marvels—Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir seeks to balance the beauty and chaos of nature on a knife’s edge, and Finnish icon Jean Sibelius nearly sweeps the listener away in a tide of sound. In between is Prokofiev’s supremely virtuosic and profoundly expressive masterpiece for cello and orchestra, played by the young French cellist Edgar Moreau—praised by "Gramophone" for his “commanding presence” and “robust, singing tone.”
