States of Independence

Strauss Violin Concerto
Sibelius Symphony No. 2

Thierry Fischer conductor
Alina Ibragimova violin

The definitive musical celebration of freedom and liberty.

Thierry Fischer round off our Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness season with Sibelius’ stirring Symphony No.2

Even in its own time, Sibelius’ Second Symphony was hailed as a statement against Russian occupation and a proud assertion of Finnish national identity. An extremely powerful piece with a stirring finale, it played its part in paving the way for Finland’s independence in 1917, and helped make Sibelius a national hero.

Thierry Fischer is joined by violinist Alina Ibragimova for a programme also featuring the music of Richard Strauss.
