      2015: The Midnight Sun

      Part of Inside Out

      Music from 1815, 1915 and 2015 lights up in the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2020 Vision project, broadcast from the Royal Festival Hall.

      When Jean Sibelius saw a flight of swans in the sunset, he knew that he had the ending of his Fifth Symphony.

      Premiered in 1915, and conducted tonight by Sibelius’ fellow Finn Hannu Lintu, it’s the culmination of a journey that begins in 1815, with Schubert’s playful Third Symphony.

      The adventure extends right up to 2015 with a chance to hear Hungarian trumpet star Gábor Boldoczki in a punchy ‘little concerto’ by the late, great Polish master Krzysztof Penderecki.

      Back in Finland (but still in 2015), Lotta Wennäkoski conjures textures and colours like you’ve never imagined.
