Classical music writer, composer and broadcaster Stephen Johnson talks about Sibelius's Symphony No.5.Stephen JohnsoOne 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.
