Sibelius Symphony No. 2

Thursday, April 7, 2022 at 7:30pm PT From its icy, desolate opening to its robust, jubilant finale, Sibelius’ Violin Concerto glows. Isabelle Faust performs the seldom-heard original version of the piece — full of unexpected twists and turns. The orchestra expertly shapes the Second Symphony’s arching melodies and majestic lines alongside a bold, world premiere work by composer Angélica Negrón.
