CBSO Sibelius’ Second at 2:15pm Symphony Hall, Birmingham

Edward Gardner – Conductor            Baiba Skride – Violin
Programme
Strauss Death and Transfiguration, 24′
Prokofiev Violin Concerto No. 2, 26′
Sibelius Symphony No. 2, 44′

Don’t be put off by the name! The Richard Strauss who wrote Death and Transfiguration was a young genius in a hurry, with musical ambitions that were larger than life itself. It’s a spectacular way to begin a concert that stars a real Birmingham favourite, the fabulous Baiba Skride, in Prokofiev’s zingy concerto, and ends with Sibelius’s mighty symphonic hymn to freedom – and a melody you’ll never forget.
