The Sibelius Train

Leif Segerstam, conductor Helena Juntunen, soprano Richard Strauss: Vier letzte Lieder Leif Segerstam: Symphony No. 272 "Summery Screamings..." (première) Jean Sibelius: Symphony No. 1 e-minor op. 39 The enchanting soprano Helena Juntunen makes a long expected comeback to Turku Philharmonic Orchestra as the soloist of this concert, starring in Strauss’s wonderful Vier letzte Lieder-suite, which was the last piece the composer ever finished. Chief conductor Leif Segerstam will also be conducting the première of his own summery symphony as well as Jean Sibelius’s first symphony - suitable enough in preparation for the composer’s 150th anniversary next year! The next day, the orchestra will be travelling to Saint Petersburg, Russia, to perform the same concert in the legendary Mariinsky Hall.
