Conductor: Kirill Karabits
Light and carefree, Mendelssohn’s incidental music depicts the fairy realm of Shakespeare’s play with enchanting, perhaps even enchanted, music full of other-worldly yet subtle energy. Scriabin’s Rêverie, for all its brevity, is packed full of luscious harmonies interwoven to create a swirling dreamscape that ebbs and flows mysteriously. One of the really great, late-Romantic symphonies, Sibelius’ Fifth has an epic quality; a sweep and grandeur which triumphs over passing feelings of anxiety to celebrate the heroic, optimistic power of life. The gorgeous opening sunrise is best described by Sibelius himself. “God opens His door for a moment and His orchestra plays.” This was no boast!
