BSO Presents: Sibelius Violin Concerto

Principal Guest Conductor Markus Stenz conducts an eclectic program including the beautiful Siegfried Idyll that Richard Wagner wrote for his wife, Cosima. In response to failing his violin audition with the Vienna Philharmonic, Sibelius composed one of the most technically challenging violin concertos ever written, performed here by Latvian violinist Baiba Skride. Haydn’s “London” Symphony is the composer’s most regal symphony, filled with the sounds of trumpets and timpani.
