SIBELIUSSymphony No.5Listen

 

Great-hearted, superb musicianship has characterised Vladimir Ashkenazy’s career, both as a pianist and a conductor. A musical giant of our time, his concerts are always thrilling, his interpretations sublimely artistic. These concerts mark his début in the HK Phil’s season, and feature aptly passionate masterworks. Sibelius’ Fifth Symphony, a heroic celebration of Finland’s native wonders, evokes profound darkness and gleaming light. Richard Strauss’ Don Juan captures the blustering romance of a reckless lover. Then, from much later in Strauss’ life, the Four Last Songs mark a farewell to life and love.
