About The Concert

In honour of his 50th birthday, the Finnish government commissioned Sibelius to write his powerful Fifth Symphony, a masterwork that has become a staple in orchestral repertoire. Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto, which was completed shortly before his death, features soaring melodies and a sublime middle movement. Zosha Di Castri’s 2023 composition, Pentimento, portrays the idea of perpetual cycles, both large and small, within music.
