"Nothing less than a miracle," reads a rave review in Dutch newspaper NRC, "is what happens when [Tarmo] Peltokoski conducts the Rotterdam Philharmonic in Sibelius’s Second Symphony. Staggering, breathtaking, tear-jerkingly beautiful. Even writing about it brings back the goosebumps. Tarmo Peltokoski. Write down that name." Just 22, Peltokoski joins forces with the celebrated RPhO for this poetic masterpiece of symphonic lyricism—"a confession of the soul," in the words of the composer. This stirring work presents the perfect opportunity for the celebrated ensemble to showcase the talent of each orchestral member, particularly in the symphony’s prominent woodwind solos.
