Sakari Oramo conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra in an evening of orchestral favourites, including Strauss’s Don Juan, Grieg’s great Piano Concerto and one of Stravinsky’s best-known ballets, The Firebird.

Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch, the programme is focusing on music of splendor and character. Sibelius’s brooding tone poem En Saga will be played in the interval. Sibelius said about his own work that it contained ‘the whole of my youth’ and he mused ‘Can one think of anything other than Finland while listening to it?’

The acclaimed Spanish virtuoso Javier Perianes joins the orchestra for Grieg’s Piano Concerto.
