La serie Linn dedicata a Sibelius si arriccchisce di una produzione finale d’eccellenza


Nell’anno in cui la BBC National Orchestra of Wales festeggia i novanta anni dalla sua nascita, il direttore Thomas Søndergård dirige l’orchestra in uno spettacolo di sei dei più famosi capolavori di Sibelius.

Continuando il fascino condiviso della partnership con la musica orchestrale di Sibelius questa registrazione accende i riflettori su altri due principali filoni tanto cari al maestro finlandese Thomas Søndergår: musica teatrale e poema sonoro.

Sibelius established his credentials early on with the tonally adventurous En saga, which brings to mind the excellence of Berlioz’ orchestral writing. A successful foray into the tone world of Debussy followed, resulting in the haunting seascape of The Oceanides, unquestionably Sibelius’s most impressionistic orchestral canvas. The wonderfully descriptive Swan of Tuonela finds Sibelius at his mystical best as he casts the cor anglais as the majestic swan from Finnish mythology. Valse Triste is one of Sibelius’ best known works having achieved worldwide popularity. Originally scored for strings, a 1904 revision saw the addition of flute, clarinet, horns and timpani creating a bewitching orchestral miniature that has been reproduced in countless arrangements.

Sibelius wrote it was ‘pure inspiration’ that led to the composition of the perpetually popular Finlandia. With its world-famous hymn motif, its melodic appeal is inescapable; the dark-hued orchestration is entirely characteristic (especially in those glowering brass interjections at the very start), whilst the patriotic fervour and fierce pride it expresses is genuinely uplifting.”

Sibelius: Finlandia rappresenta un finale adatto a questa serie Linn dedicata a Sibelius.
