Sibelius Symphony No. 6

--interval--

Beethoven Symphony No. 3, Eroica

Esa-Pekka Salonen conducts Beethoven’s titanic Eroica Symphony, twice as long as the symphonies of Haydn and Mozart and often said to mark the beginning of the Romantic period alongside Sibelius’ austere Sixth Symphony: “whereas most other modern composers are engaged in manufacturing cocktails of every hue and description, I offer the public pure cold water”.
