The Estonian National Symphony Orchestra will provide the finale to our Zurich International Orchestra Series 2022-23, opening its programme with a work by the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, whom many regard as the world’s greatest living composer, in his moving tribute to Benjamin Britten.
We make no apology for programming in the series a second Rachmaninov piano concerto in the composer’s anniversary year, and Barry Douglas’ interpretation of the Third Piano Concerto is sure to be a highlight of the season.
The concert will end with Sibelius’ Fifth Symphony with its glorious finale, inspired by a flight of swans above Sibelius’ country home where he wrote the Symphony.
‘… an enthralling mix of chiselled brilliance and melting lyricism.’ (Belfast Telegraph on Barry Douglas)
The Zurich International Orchestra Series is sponsored by Zurich.
