Oslo Philharmonic/Klaus Mäkelä

with Lise Davidsen

Lise Davidsen singing on stage portrait

Enjoy Lise Davidsen’s sublime soprano one last time, as she closes her artist spotlight, and our season, in the company of Scandinavia’s super-orchestra and their electrifying Chief Conductor.

See into the tortured mind of a genius facing loss of both love and life in the Adagio from Mahler’s unfinished Tenth Symphony. Bask in the warmth of Davidsen’s superb voice in Berg’s Seven Early Songs. And set off into the summer evening with the soaring swan motif of Sibelius’s Fifth Symphony still floating through your head.

A concert of endings, but new beginnings too: this will be the first opportunity for London audiences to see this slick orchestra led by their captivating Chief Conductor and Artistic Advisor, Klaus Mäkelä. An accomplished cellist, steeped in the music of Sibelius, with a ‘characteristic programming flair’ (Gramophone), the young Finn possesses an intriguing new musical voice we look forward to hearing much more from.

The end time for this concert will be added here closer to the performance date
