Owen Burton conductor *

John Stringer conductor

Sibelius     The Dryad 
Rautavaara     Anadyomene *

Rautavaara     Piano Concerto no. 1

Arvo Pärt     Trisagion

Stravinsky      Symphony in Three Movements

A Finnish first half includes two works by Rautavaara:  the Debussy-inspired Anadyomene and the eclectic First Piano Concerto that concludes with a thrilling moto perpetuo. The soloist is finalist Jakub Watrobski and PhD student Owen Burton, whose focus is the music of Rautavaara, conducts Anadyomene. Stravinsky’s symphony is a tour de force ending the concert in a blaze of glory, but is prefaced with Pärt’s beautiful and often gentle work for strings that closely mirrors Orthodox texts.

Please note start time!
