John Storgårds conducts the BBC Philharmonic live at Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall in a programme of Nielsen, Sibelius and Shostakovich.

The concert is the first in a series exploring Nielsen’s concertos. Clarinettist Sabine Meyer will join the orchestra for the composer's conflict-driven Clarinet Concerto.

Also on the programme is Sibelius’s gentle and melancholy Rakastava and Shostakovich’s monumental Fourth Symphony, composed during one of the most turbulent periods in modern history.
