Kansas City Symphony Classical Series: Hope Springs Eternal: Sibelius’ Second

Description: Michael Stern, conductor Anne Akiko Meyers, violin NIELSEN Overture to Maskarade EINOJUHANI RAUTAVAARA Fantasia (world premiere) RAVEL Tzigane SIBELIUS Symphony No. 2 At a time when Finland was under Russian domination, Sibelius’ Second Symphony was viewed as a message of hope. Today, the fiercely dramatic and ultimately triumphant work is one of Sibelius’ most-loved compositions. The sparkling overture to Danish composer Nielsen’s opera, Maskarade, sets the stage for a tale of romance and mistaken identity. American virtuoso Anne Akiko Meyers stars in not one, but two works for violin and orchestra — the world premiere of Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara’s violin concerto, Fantasia, and Ravel’s Tzigane, inspired by vibrant Gypsy music. Tickets for this Kansas City Symphony concert start at $25. Submitted by: Beth Buchanan Kansas City Symphony
