Sibelius Violin Concerto

February 23, 2013
 

Jean Sibelius finished his violin concerto in 1904, but extensively revised it after its premiere. Not many years ago the original version was recorded, and this original version is fascinating. To hear another version of music you know well is like hearing it again for the first time. We will hear some of Sibelius' first thoughts on his famous concerto.
