Osmo Vänskä conducts his version of music from Sibelius’s suites for The Tempest.
In celebration of the 150 years since the birth of Finnish composer Jean Sibelius, perhaps his most significant living advocate Osmo Vänskä conducts some of the last music the composer wrote: Vänskä’s own narrated arrangement of excerpts from the orchestral suites for The Tempest, based on incidental music written in 1925 for a performance of the play in Copenhagen.
All the magic and mystery of The Tempest is heard here after a rare performance by acclaimed pianist Stephen Hough of Dvorák’s virtuosic Piano Concerto.
