Schumann Symphony 2
Robert Schumann composed Symphony No. 2 in a state of high emotional turmoil. Its mood gradually lightens, adding humour and warmth, until it ends in a state of joyous fulfillment.
Come for: John Storgaards, Chief Conductor of the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra and Principal Guest Conductor of BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, is one of Finland’s exceptional artists.
And more: Percussion virtuoso Colin Currie performs the concerto that Finnish composer Kalevi Aho created expressly for him. Focusing on lyrical atmosphere and intensity, it evokes the folk rituals of Finland.
