‘Other composers mix brightly-coloured cocktails’, said Jean Sibelius. ‘I offer pure, cool water.’ And in his Seventh Symphony he does exactly that: a masterpiece hewn from air, rock and water, as moving as it is elemental. This is music to refresh the spirit and send the heart soaring: the perfect antidote to lockdown gloom, and the only possible way to follow Beethoven’s majestic ‘Emperor’ Concerto. LPO favourite Robin Ticciati conducts (The Arts Desk praised his ‘clarity and focus’), and as soloist we’ve invited the superb Russian pianist Denis Kozhukhin. Together, they’ll bring out all the beauty, daring and grandeur of this most stirring of all piano concertos.
