BBC Symphony Orchestra Total Immersion

Sibelius the Storyteller

The BBC Symphony Orchestra ventures into the literary and cultural hinterland of one of the 20th Century’s great symphonists – Jean Sibelius.

No genius creates in a vacuum, and while Sibelius’s seven symphonies are landmarks of 20th-century orchestral music, they have deep roots. Today, the BBC Symphony Orchestra and its Finnish chief conductor Sakari Oramo lead a day-long adventure into the forests (both real and legendary) that nourished Sibelius’s imagination: the words, the landscapes, the colleagues and the traditions that formed the bedrock on which he built his distinctive musical vision.
