Symphony no. 7
Violin Concerto
City Noir

Performers and Cast

Valeriy Sokolov
Kirill Karabits

Sibelius’ last symphony is one of the twentieth century’s true masterpieces. In form it absorbs the traditional four movement symphony into a single span of music. Each section grows out of the previous one, developing its material to make a truly organic whole, with a huge emotional impact. Sibelius, a violinist himself, exploited all his knowledge of the instrument in his dramatic and atmospheric concerto, which ends with a thrilling finale. City Noir is a glittering evocation of the energy of late forties Los Angeles, and the dark swooning passions of film noir, in the form of a three movement symphony.
