BEETHOVEN  Leonore Overture No. 3
MOZART  Piano Concerto No. 24
SIBELIUS  Symphony No. 1

How glorious it is to behold pure genius at its prime in Mozart’s late, great Piano Concerto No. 24, written during an astoundingly prolific stretch in which the music poured forth as if fully formed. Sibelius is known today as one of the greatest symphonists ever, synonymous with lean, glacial beauty and a groundbreaking style all his own. Here, we hear him on the cusp of a new century, brimming with youthful energy and soaring, expansive soundscapes.
