Sibelius Symphony No. 1

We return to Mikkeli Music Festival for four fantastic concerts featuring many highlights of the orchestral repertoire, plus an afternoon chamber music recital.

Santtu opens our 2024 residency with Schumann’s last symphony: the ‘Rhenish’. Inspired by a trip to Cologne, hear music evocative of the peacefully flowing Rhine, the church bells of Cologne Cathedral, leading to a high-spirited finale. First, hear a pinnacle of the Romantic repertoire – Brahms’s Violin Concerto – performed by award-winning Swedish violinist Ava Bahari.

To celebrate Bruckner’s 200th anniversary year, Santtu summons the renowned Philharmonia sound for the composer’s Seventh Symphony – a mighty work that remains one of the composer’s best loved.

An Opera Gala concert, chamber music performance, and closing programme including Elgar’s masterful Cello Concerto and Sibelius’s Symphony No. 1 complete our series of concerts at this year’s Festival.
