“One of the greatest experiences of my life. God, what beauty!” Few composers were as close to nature as Jean Sibelius, and when he saw a flight of swans high in the Finnish sky, he heard unforgettable music.

His Fifth symphony begins with a radiant sunrise and ends with that noble vision – and a tune that’ll stay with you forever. It’s a majestic finish to a concert that begins with the stirring call to freedom of Beethoven’s Leonore Overture, and features the Liverpool debut of oboist extraordinaire Franҫois Leleux in two tongue-twisting, eartickling musical extravaganzas!
