Marios Papadopoulos conducts our remarkable Associate Concertmaster Finnish-Estonian violinist Anna-Liisa Bezrodny in music close to her heart – the violin concerto by the composer who defined Finland in sound, Jean Sibelius. The concerto Sibelius wrote as a surrogate for the virtuoso violin career he could never have is a work of inspiring focus and fortitude, the virtuosity of which is never just for show. Here it forms the culmination of a concert that opens with an arresting overture by Beethoven and Haydn’s best known symphony.
