The London Philharmonic Orchestra with a Finnish twist: Dima Slobodeniouk, Lotta Wennäkoski and, of course, Sibelius. And although star violinist Christian Tetzlaff is not Finnish, his connection to Sibelius' famous and infamous Violin Concerto is all the stronger: "I think Sibelius did for his century what Beethoven did for his."

The Sibelius Violin Concerto is one of those high mountains that a violinist has to climb. Christian Tetzlaff has climbed it several times - and not without success.

Together with the London Philharmonic Orchestra under Russian-Finnish conductor Dima Slobodeniouk, this is the perfect cast, with Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony as the perfect finale and Lotta Wennäkoski's Hava as a thrilling overture. 

concert themes and series:

"Who needs another recording of [the Sibelius concerto]? It turns out we all do, and this is it ... You wait for him to trip over his toes and go flying – but of course Tetzlaff emerges unscathed, even as his listeners are left breathless. An exhilarating new look at familiar music."
