Salonen has conducted most of Sibelius’s major orchestral works during his time as Principal Conductor of the Philharmonia. As he prepares to hand over the baton at the end of this season, he revisits the sweeping soundscapes of the Second Symphony. Known above all for the power and grandeur of its finale, the symphony has many more distinctive moments.

Yefim Bronfman’s larger-than-life virtuosity and natural warmth make him a favourite with audiences worldwide, and he and Salonen are frequent concert partners. For tonight’s concert they have chosen Beethoven’s masterful Piano Concerto No. 3, featuring one of his dreamiest slow movements.

Metacosmos, by Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir, has been described as “a rumbling, shimmering sound sculpture that completely envelops and astonishes” (NPR Music). Premiered by Esa-Pekka Salonen in New York in 2018, and since heard at the BBC Proms, it is already well on its way to becoming a 21st-century classic.
