Live from Bridgewater Hall, Manchester

Join John StorgÄrds and the BBC Philharmonic for the second concert in their cycle of Sibelius's symphonies. The Fourth Symphony, without doubt his darkest, was written at a low point in Sibelius's life, during his struggle to come to terms with his diagnosis of cancer and to emerge with determination. The Second could hardly be more different. From playful beginning to triumphant finish, there's never been a more inspiring musical portrait of a nation awakening to freedom.
