JOSEPH SWENSEN Conductor
PAUL LEWIS Piano

Two worlds collide thrillingly: Beethoven in Vienna around 1800, entering his prime and out to impress both as a performer and composer. Sibelius, 120 years later, deep in the Finnish countryside creating what would be some of his very last works. These are two composers closest to Joseph Swensen’s heart. He delivers full-blooded interpretations and pairing him with Paul Lewis, another great Beethovenian, is bound to be inspirational.

CONDUCTOR INSIGHTS: 6:30PM Joseph Swensen in conversation with Svend McEwan-Brown, a regular contributor to SCO programme notes.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for SCO: Sibelius Symphonies 6 and 7 are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
