Vladimir Ashkenazy conducts Sibelius and Schumann
Chamber orchestra of Europe
Thank you for your understanding.
Vladimir Ashkenazy performs the suite composed in 1911 by Jean Sibelius, Rakastava (The Lover), inspired by texts from the Finnish Romantic period.
The second part of the programme presents Schumann's Symphony No. 2 in C Major premiered in 1846 by Mendelssohn. This work then became Tchaikovsky and Brahms' favourite.
