Classic Intro - 6.15pm, Music Room
University of Liverpool’s Senior Lecturer in Music, Dr Kenneth Forkert-Smith, talks about Sibelius’s Symphony No.5.
One evening in the forests of Finland, Sibelius saw a flight of sixteen swans. ‘God, what beauty!’ he exclaimed – and he transformed that natural wonder into the melody that crowns his Fifth Symphony, a tune so good that you feel like you’ve known it your whole life. Tonight’s concert unites the heroism of Beethoven, the poetry of Chopin (played by Russian star Pavel Kolesnikov) and a Liverpool first: the haunting and beautiful Entr’acte by Pulitzer Prize-winner Caroline Shaw.
