Post-concert Question Time - starts 15 minutes after the concert ends (in the Music Room) with conductor Emilia Hoving.In Finnish legend, the Swan of Tuonela glides on the river of the underworld, singing a song that no mortal can ever forget. The music of Sibelius gets under your skin like that, and in this Liverpool debut for the award-winning Finnish conductor Emilia Hoving, you’ll hear sounds of nature and triumph, as well as the swan’s haunting song. Plus, of course, the golden sound of superstar violinist Henning Kraggerud, in the heart-melting melodies of Tchaikovsky’s sunlit Violin Concerto. To begin, the Orchestra’s own violinist and composer, Mihkel Kerem, brings his sparkling Divertimento to Liverpool for its UK premiere.
